Like fellow Scottish bands Frightened Rabbit and the Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks doesn't shy away from its native land's accent and cavernous, echo-drenched sonics. But whereas the former dabbles in slightly more folky pop constructs — and the latter creates towering, reverb-laden soundscapes — WWPJ falls somewhere in between. Its 2009 debut, These Four Walls, ranges between moody, slowly cresting space-pop ("Conductor") and slightly danceable post-rock numbers ("Roll Up Your Sleeves," "Quiet Little Voices"). It's a formula that should make for a dynamic live show. A new EP, The Last Place You'll Look, came out March 9; it has three new cuts plus alternate arrangements of two songs from Walls.
