The Heartbreaks

The Heartbreaks are a four piece band based in Manchester in the UK. Matthew Whitehouse (vocals/guitar), Joseph Kondras (Drums), Ryan Wallace (Guitar) and Deaks (Bass), originally all from Morecombe got together last year and set about creating their music which reflects on everyday life situations and have the single Liar, My Dear, due for release on 29th March.

The Heartbreaks

The Heartbreaks are at once melancholic yet enlivening, as the songs swagger forward with a fierce determination, which is cocooned in a swathe of guitar swhirl and echo. References to The Smiths and Elvis Costello, particularly through Matthews vocals are striking, but not repetitive, as they take these markers in to the early twenty first century.

With an ever extending tour list and the release of their new material, it will be of no surprise if their music continues to make a far wider impact. This is easily accessible, yet not synthetic and the four guys have created a sound which appears to resonate well, not just for its relevance, but for depth of musical integrity matched with contextual lyric.

I’ll aim to get a review of the single ready in good time and personally hope to get to see the band later this month.
