We Were Promised Jetpacks premiere video for 'Peaks and Troughs'

Posted on

We Were Promised Jetpacks’ track “Peaks and Troughs” off their album Unravelling is about problems of excess and our animalistic urges for outlandish consumption, our tendency to derail. It’s absolutely a highlight of the record—a record that itself is a highlight of their career—wrought with tension and urgency from the rhythm section, offset with occasional low-key guitar riffs and lead singer Adam Thompson’s controlled vocal.

On Tuesday, the Scottish rockers are releasing a video to match. A manicured couple take their cardigan sweaters and dainty children for a picnic on the most manicured of lawns. And as the song builds, so does the crazed look in each their eyes. They fall into gluttony and subsequent guilt.
