Courage Having listened to this band starting with "These Four Walls," this album exhibits a much more mature and honed tone. We Were Promised Jetpacks has always had fantastic instrumental and lyrical work, but "Unravelling" presents listeners with a solidified heart beat that displays the band's development over time. My top three songs on this album are "Ricochet," "Peaks and Troughs," and "Peace Sign." This band has immense potential and I'm excited to see what they create next. Well worth the buy. Favorite track: Peace Sign.

Catherine Wasser This album has impacted the lives of two very grateful souls. We were drawn by the sound feel - then captured by the lyric. We feel that the album as a whole was cultivated just for us- we are surely not the only ones. This speaks volumes about the honesty of the artistry.

about

The band present us with Unravelling, easily their most accomplished album, and a new direction in songwriting for the band. Recorded in Glasgow at the infamous Chem19 Studios with Paul Savage (The Twilight Sad, Franz Ferdinand, Mogwai), the album focuses all the power and fury of the Jetpacks to a finely controlled point, crafting from both youthful catharsis and skillful maturity.

The band’s spring US tour proved that as much as fans love the chest rattling crescendos of their catalog, they’re equally ready for the bit of sheen that’s found its way to the forefront of the new songs. Particularly instrumental to the widening sound is the addition of new member and longtime friend Stuart McGachan, a multiinstrumentalist
described by the band’s Adam Thompson as “an accomplished keys,
piano and guitar player as well as having a lovely little singing voice,” all of which added greatly to the development of the band’s new direction. Live, the five-piece setup only adds to the power and bombast that echoes from the stage, but in the studio the new flexibility has lead to an album with widescreen vision, supple
emotional shading and particularly catchy hooks laced throughout.
