It’s been three years since we got a new album from Scotland’s We Were Promised Jetpacks. Of course the world essentially lost last year but the trio is back with a new album Enjoy The View coming in September. While they’ve already revealed one song, their new single “Fat Chance” is a lot more hook heavy. To celebrate the news they’ve also announced a North American tour running from the Fall into next year.
The song opens with a stark piano and snappy drums that pop. When the vocals come in they’re full of energy. The song holds a sound that’s larger than the band’s previous works. The songwriting is more involved between the hook filled notes. There’s a flowing tone throughout with the vocals as the lead. The pacing keeps the song in your head without becoming overpowering. The lyric video has a feel that’s like looking from the window of a car on vacation.
The video can be viewed above. “Fat Chance can be heard on all streaming sites. Enjoy The View is available for preorder directly from Big Scary Monsters ahead of its September 10 release. Their North American tour begins November 13 in Hamden, CT at Space Ballroom until April 10, 2022 in Montreal, Canada at Bar Le Ritz PDB. Their complete tour schedule can be found here.
