We Were Promised Jetpacks

9 p.m. Monday, March 15. The Old Rock House,1200 South 7th Street.

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.
