We Were Promised Jetpacks

If It Happens (Big Scary Monsters)

By • Jun 9th, 2021 • Category: Single review

Now a trio, WWPJ have not released any material for a wee while but this track, available on Bandcamp since April, is to be released on 7″ inch vinyl in June.

The track is a classic slice of Celtic indie rock, and if that sounds a bit familiar, if done well it can be very good, and this is. There are sweeping and swirling guitars, thundering drums and a committed vocal line.

“All I wanna do is get high and enjoy the view” is a great call to arms from this Edinburgh-based three-piece – “always another rung on the ladder”…

The track extends to almost five minutes but is well worth the listen – the words are slightly jaded, but the guitar lines and solos are gorgeous – this combo have always had the melodic touch and still have it – BM hopes that they will keep on with it but they must be missing the live shows, the audience certainly is.
