Watch: We Were Promised Jetpacks – “I Keep It Composed” Video

Slightly Poorly Timed Considering Today’s Anniversary

We Were Promised Jetpacks have released a video for “I Keep It Composed,” but perhaps they should have waited a day or two to share it with the world. The clip from the Scottish band features a survivor of an air crash struggling to reach a box of flares amongst the wreckage. Considering that today is the thirteenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, in which planes were of course hijacked and crashed, the timing seems slightly insensitive. Although you don’t see the actual crash and it’s not even clear if it’s a passenger plane or a smaller one, so perhaps it simply didn’t cross the band’s mind. Either way it’s an effective, if slightly poorly timed, video.

“I Keep It Composed” is taken from Unravelling, the band’s third album, which is due out October 14th via FatCat. Check out our interview last week with the band about the making of it. Watch the video below.
