Never miss another 'The Heartbreaks' show
The Morecambe four-piece head out on a UK tour this May, coinciding with the release of their debut album 'Funtimes' out on 7th May on Nusic Sounds.
'Funtimes' is a 10 track collection of bright, witty and youthful anthems. It combines ferocious, rattling drums and chiming guitars with Motown hooks that come together with the knowing swagger and melodic lushness of all great life affirming pop. All of this is enriched by soaring and swooning vocals of bittersweet lyrics about a love of melancholy Morecambe and the trials of everyday life combined with a shimmer that displays a love of Northern Soul 45s and the girl-group soul of The Ronettes and the Shangri-Las. The sound is as classic as the ideas and musical influences behind it.
The lead single, 'Delay, Delay' will be released on 30th April and the band have also made album track 'Winter Gardens' available as a free download to fans on their website and Facebook.

The Morecambe four-piece play bright, witty and youthful anthems, combining ferocious, rattling drums and chiming guitars with Motown hooks that come together with the knowing swagger and melodic lushness of all great life affirming pop. During the last year, The Heartbreaks have performed alongside Carl Barat, The Killers, Kaiser Chiefs and The Courteeners along with performing for Bono in Milan, Burberry in New York and Kitsune in Paris. With comparisons to iconic musical heroes such as Morrissey and Elvis Costello, frontman Matthew Whitehouse has all the charisma, finesse and significance of a classic frontman. The Heartbreaks are Matthew Whitehouse (vocals), Joseph Kondras (Drums), Ryan Wallace (Guitar) and Deaks (Bass).
