The Heartbreaks Continue With ‘Polly’ The New Single, released September 3rd, 2012’

This September will see The Heartbreaks release‘Polly’; the second single to be taken from their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Funtimes’. Coinciding with a series of UK dates, alongside their first hometown show of 2012 in Morecambe, the song stands as testament to the not so distant past when, before the age of social networking, it was easy to lose contact with someone so very close to you, as life got in the way. Not only is it certain to be one of this summer’s ubiquitous festival anthems, it is also an extraordinary piece of bittersweet, heartache pop.


‘Funtimes’ saw the band build on the buzz of early releases to deliver an album that had Dazed declaring ‘every song is capable of being a single’ and Louderthanwar acclaiming ‘a chiming, shimmering pop gem.’ The band kept up the unique connection they have with their dedicated fanbase with a series of impromptu gigs for Record Store Day that saw them stop the traffic in Berwick St and a monthly ‘Funtimes’ club night in Hoxton that played the music that means so much to the band. To cap it all, single ‘Delay, Delay’ topped a Fly magazine poll for the single of the year so far.


Prior to their second jaunt this year around the UK, The Heartbreaks play selected festivals in both the UK and Japan, where ‘Funtimes’ has found fans in the right places leading to a high profile set at Fuji Rock and a special Tokyo show for Burberry.
