Sounding a bit like the boisterous younger brothers of fellow Scotsmen Frightened Rabbit, We Were Promised Jetpacks favor pretty much one tempo and style with their speedy, barbed-wire post-punk. What the sound lacks in diversity is made up for in heavy hooks and barking brogues. WWPJ's delightfully dark sophomore album, In the Pit of the Stomach, is already over two years old, and their long-awaited third album is due this fall. With Honeyblood. 18+.
