Issue 3 // 2011 I was fortunate to catch up with Matthew Whitehouse, Joseph Kondras, Ryan Wallace and Chris Deakin of British indie rock band The Heartbreaks to ask them a little bit about how life was going for them right now as a band. Having all met in the Lancashire seaside town of Morecame, Matt explained he remembered Ryan from playing out as a kid, “he was always roller blading and with Joseph and myself we met at the Moscow State Circus on Rylands Park, then Deaks just turned up one day with a guitar under his arm and a spring in his step. We went skinny dipping in the crab pool on Morecambe promenade and the rest as they say is history” They relocated to Manchester, but however claim to be obsessed by the seaside Joseph added “with its faded glamour” and “tacky, tragic beauty you can’t beat British coastal towns such as Morecambe” When listening to their tracks you will hear smatterings of Presley, Costello and Springsteen in some of them. For these sensitive souls sing about the rain falling down on a humdrum town. There is also a dose of Suede’s glam stomp in their music, too, and a degree of 60s Glasvegas-style shimmer and echo that betrays a love of girl-group pop. There is a lot happening for The Heartbreaks in 2011 and this will almost certainly be the year that they shine words
