Streetlight Records

Available again in an all new repress, We Were Promised Jetpacks's youthful energy explodes thunderously as colossal choruses fall unfailingly into place. Every space is filled, tension bristling achingly in Thompson's vocal delivery as the rest of the band crashes around him with a perfect balance of force and harmony. The romanticism and accessibility of a pure pop sensibility is never hidden too deep. Both "Roll Up Your Sleeves" and lead-off single "Quiet Little Voices" capture this beautifully, immediately. The product of Ken and Jolyon Thomas's (Sigur Ros, Cocteau Twins, David Bowie etc.) studio mastery and Peter Katis's (Frightened Rabbit, The Twilight Sad, The National etc.) mixing, the recording of These Four Walls was almost entirely live, with only minimal overdubs, and the band members' collected passion and intuition is translated into a pure, precise form.
