Song of the Week: We Were Promised Jetpacks

I’m pretty sure I heard a song by Scotland quartet We Were Promised Jetpacks sometime last year (although it could have been a track from Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, another unassuming indie rock band with a great name), so they’ve been on my radar for a while. But now WWPJ are ready for their prime-time moment, with a terrific new Wombats-ish single, “Quiet Little Voices,” and an album ready for release in June. Hard to keep quiet about this one...
