We Were Promised Jetpacks – It’s Thunder and It’s Lightning/Ships With Holes Will Sink

It’s Thunder and It’s Lightning
/Ships With Holes Will Sink

Seen somewhat as successors to the Biffy crown of Scottish champions of loud, passionate, indie post-rock, We Were Promised Jetpacks are only getting bigger every day.

Fortunately for us, WWPJ are sticking firmly to old-school Biffy as an influence, rather than the dreadful neo-prog pretension they are now, keeping with the always fulfilling clean intricacy to awesome distortion approach, and letting forceful vocals that marry rage and wonder evoke a vital passion.

As pleasing as it all is though, it’s a work lacking in ingenuity somewhat, with both sides in this AA side difficult to distinguish, and some new ideas must be forthcoming for their rise to continue.

For now though, the boredom is a long way off, and it’s still fun to get a little prima, even if it‘s hard to tell exactly what song‘s making you do so.
