A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of sitting down with the lovely boys of The Heartbreaks before they appeared live as part of the absolutely fantastic bill for their label Fierce Panda Records’ 19th birthday party. (They were accompanied that night by the equally fabulous Hey Sholay and headliners The Crookes.) I just to ask about two of their members’ previous work experiences as ice cream men in their seaside hometown of Morecambe (really, how could I not?) and how it felt to be singled out for their amazing music by the man himself Morrissey and going on tour with him. And of course I couldn’t not ask them about forthcoming new material that fans are anxiously awaiting for after the 2012 release of their aptly titled album ‘Funtimes’.

I could not have done this without the assistance of Braden, Sam and Toby, so thanks very much, guys, for this TGTF / Sound Influx / Woodpile Sessions collaboration. And of course we’d never have an interview without The Heartbreaks, who were true Northern gentlemen in every respect and made me long for the North West! Thanks very much too to Nian for helping set up this interview and a big thank you to the head of Fierce Panda Records Simon Williams for allowing me to interview both the Crookes and the Heartbreaks during such an important event on the Panda calendar.

[…] their summery, Balearic-influenced tracks, and TGTF favourites The Heartbreaks (who editor Mary just interviewed in London a couple weeks ago at the Scala) will supply their stylish, upbeat, typically British guitar-pop sound as the sun goes […]

[…] this interview I did with The Heartbreaks in London back in May is any indication, the band’s second album […]
