Review of Quiet Little Voices Single by We Were Promised Jetpacks

Review of We Were Promised Jetpacks single 'Quiet Little Voices' released through Fat Cat Records.

Already something of a household name in underground circles, Scots four-piece We Were Promised Jetpacks have a lot to live up to if the pre-debut release, and some would say, pre-signing hype is to be justified.

What they don't realise of course is that WWPJ have tunes dropping out of their ears like a stringent flow of wax, not to mention an adventurous, playful mood about each and every one of them that switches direction almost at will post-chorus every time.

'Quiet Little Voices', their debut seven-inch for esteemed independent Fat Cat Records was the lead song on their original demo that first got them noticed, and despite being well over a year old, it still sounds as fresh and exciting as it did back then.

Mixing pop sensibilities with a penchant for delivering obtuse, angular guitar chasms with random aplomb, 'Quiet Little Voices' could be The Futureheads covering one of Parts & Labor's more extreme moments of serendipity.

Flipside 'Let's Call This A Map' shows We Were Promised Jetpacks at their most indirect, its 4x4 math trajectory taking them to a completely different yet just as engaging world to the title track.

With an album already recorded and set for release this June, we expect you'll be hearing a lot more from this band in the coming months, and rightly so.

9/10
