We Were Promised Jetpacks/Prism Tats/Golden Streets of Paradise

When: Sat., June 25, 9 p.m. 2016

This Edinburgh, Scotland quartet made a name for themselves cramming the boundless tone and restlessness of a post punk band into a radio-ready indie rock package. Their latest, 2014’s Unraveling, adds a bit of a more introspective vibe to the formula, but the driving melodies and thundering rhythm section remain in place. The bouncy, cyclical groove of catalog standouts like “Quiet Little Voices” and “Ships With Holes Will Sink” illustrate the energy of their live show perfectly — yes, die hard fans will loudly sing along and those not completely sold will fold their arms and observe, but everyone’s head will undoubtedly be nodding along with the beat.
