We Were Promised Jetpacks "Enjoy the View (Rough Trade Publishing)"
From Big Scary Monsters:
Acclaimed Scottish rock band We Were Promised Jetpacks are back with their much-anticipated new album Enjoy the View. Since releasing 2018’s ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’, the band have embraced change head-on. Amicably parting ways with guitarist Michael Palmer, leaving a notable empty fourth corner in their practice room, it marked a transitory moment in the band’s acclaimed career, and one that would be cemented by events to come.
Entering 2020 as a trio with a handful of songs written and a successful US tour under their belts, the world around them came to a sudden halt. Yet despite the unquestionable uncertainty that the lockdown brought, it also proved to be a blessing in disguise as the band were able to take stock, focus on new ways of writing and evolve their sound. Fifteen years into their career, the trio are more focussed than ever and Enjoy the View is the result of a band overcoming, and even thriving, despite the odds.
