TOUR INFORMATION
* Special All Ages Matinee Show

Next month, The Broken Heartbreakers will release their first single since the release of their 2015 album How We Got To Now, followed by a seven date tour of Aotearoa in October and November. The new single, We’re All Looking Up, is a homage to community, and more specifically, to the mountain under which the Heartbreaker band call home.

The Broken Heartbreakers are led by songwriters Rachel Bailey and John Guy Howell, who began their music journey together in 2002. With the passing of nearly 20 years, hundreds of gigs, four studio albums, multiple continents and a changing cast of backing band members, The Broken Heartbreakers sound has continued evolving.

We’re All Looking Up is a deliberate nod to the power pop genre, with chiming twin guitars, layered vocals and just enough harmonic twist and turns to keep listeners on their toes. “Imagine a Guided by Voices martini mixed with Dunedin’s Look Blue Go Purple - shaken not stirred.” The song is centred around North East Valley where the band all reside in Ōtepoti Dunedin and the diverse community that lives there under the protection of Kapukataumahaka (Mt Cargill).

Bailey says she was “influenced by the shared ‘alone, together’ experience of the Covid-19 lock downs. We’re all Looking Up celebrates the resilience of this community and the redemptive power of Ōtepoti’s magnificent landscapes.” “As we face the challenges in this pandemic world, the song emphasises what unites us and asks us to take comfort in the fact that ‘We’re all looking up at the same mountain’”.

Touring now as a 5-piece band, Bailey and Howell are joined by the talents of Craig Monk (Cloudboy, Dunedin Symphony Orchestra) on viola and 2nd lead guitar, Angus McBryde (asta rangu) on bass guitar and Paul McLennan-Kissel (Julian Temple Band, Entire Alphabet) on drums. With this unyielding line-up, the band joined Nadia Reid and her band for her national opera house tour in May, playing both as a 5-piece band, and as a trio in selected cities.

This time, The Broken Heartbreakers will carve their own path across the country, playing some very special venues with equally special guests along the way.

We’re All Looking Up will be available to download and stream on 1 October. Tour tickets available now from Under the Radar (Wellington tickets from Moshtix).

TOUR INFORMATION

Cassels Blue Smoke present two nights with The Eastern.
These will be intimate sit down shows, all alert level protocols will apply.

In times like these a month can be a year, a year a month and a day a lifetime.
All of us straddling a line between hope and doubt.
Way back in April, “National Treasures” (RNZ) The Eastern were feeling relieved and
as at ease as a bunch of no-hit musicians could ever feel.
The continuing Covid blitz that had waylaid the lives and incomes of travelling musicians,
crews and venues all around the world had managed only to nibble at the heels of this shore.
We had prevailed.

With this in mind a collective decision was made by the band to reach out to brothers and sisters
overseas, with some solidarity and some money to help the wheels turn.
It was conceived, agreed and believed that The Eastern could throw a small drop in someone else’s bucket.

Here there were gigs on the calendar, a functioning country and an air of the above-mentioned relief.
Thus shoulders could be shifted in the direction of need and so the band picked a venue in Ireland
dear to their hearts and raised over three thousand dollars for the great DeBarras pub in
Clonakilty Co. Cork.
They played a bunch of Pogues songs, mopped the floors with their swaying and baying and paypaled
the money across the water. Job done.

But then here at home a few months later the wolves start howling and the doors were locked down
once more. The band prevailed again but noticed that one of their favourite local venues,
The Common Room in Hastings was shaky and due to the vicissitudes of trying to run a goddamn people friendly pub
in an un-people friendly virus haunted spring, were now looking at that forever lockdown.

A quick chat with Common Room governor Gerrard Barron and a glimpse at their give a little page convinced The Eastern
they could duke up and sing for some dollars, in the same service focused manner all their Christchurch performances project.

So, its roll the sleeves, book the venue, get the tickets up and hope they can pull together a hooley
(of the sit-down kind if in level 2) in just two weeks, in order to help their friends and comrades in
the Hawkes Bay.

“We trade music for ticket money, we donate the ticket money which gets turned into love, which keeps
the doors open, which keeps the music humming and the bar staff tipped and ready” - Says Eastern
front man Adam McGrath.

An easy pop up gig for a band that has cemented themselves into hearts and minds nationwide.

The shows will be ready, rowdy and willin’ at their home base of Blue Smoke in Woolston on Friday 15th
and Saturday 16th of October.
Two nights ready for any level eventuality. New songs, hope songs, hearts songs, fight songs, drinking
and crying songs will all be on the program.
They'll play favourites and more, all in trade, all in service to the spirit of The Common Room, solidarity
and to the idea that music needs people and people need places and we need to protect the best of them
when the road gets rocky.

The Broken Heartbreakers Announce 'We're All Looking Up' NZ Tour
Chris Cudby / Photo credit: Alex Lovell-Smith / Monday 16th of August, 2021 9:38AM

Hand-picked supports for Nadia Reid's hugely popular recent Opera House and Theatre Tour, Ōtepoti's The Broken Heartbreakers have announced a spring nationwide tour celebrating the forthcoming launch of their first new single in six years ‘We’re All Looking Up’. Formed around the core collaborative songwriting duo of Rachel Bailey and John Guy Howell back in 2002, The Broken Heartbreakers are all set to treat fans across Aotearoa to the lush folk-tinted sounds of their full five-piece live band, including Craig Monk (Cloudboy, Dunedin Symphony Orchestra) on viola and 2nd lead guitar, Angus McBryde on bass guitar and drummer Paul McLennan-Kissel (Julian Temple Band, Entire Alphabet).

Influenced by the shared "alone, together" experience of the 2020 lockdowns and releasing on the 1st of October, new song ‘We’re All Looking Up’ promises to be The Broken Heartbreakers' own take on power-pop, described by the band as “Imagine a Guided by Voices martini mixed with Dunedin’s Look Blue Go Purple - shaken not stirred... As we face the challenges in this pandemic world, the song emphasises what unites us and asks us to take comfort in the fact that ‘We’re all looking up at the same mountain’”.

My first BIG concert. And in 1977, it didn't get any bigger than Led Zeppelin...

TOUR INFORMATION

Home Alone Music is proud to present 'The light you throw' – the third album from Te Whanganui-a-Tara based electricUTOPIA songwriter Lake South. Slated for release on September 17, the album was written in the midst of Aotearoa's Level-4 lockdown and recorded at a rented house in Waikawa beach.

From the anxiety of the pandemic comes a record full of hope, joy and defiance. Expertly crafted odes to friends, the cities they live in, and the futures they strive for.

These are songs to be experienced live and Lake South has the band to make them pop. Theo Sekeris (Ras Judah, Rubita) is on bass, Eddie Crawshaw (Sheep Dog & Wolf, Bonaparte) hits rhythm, and Penelope Esplin (French for Rabbits, Grawlixes) adds beatific harmonies and synths.

This collection follows 2017's 'If You're Born On An Island the Ocean Heals You' and the follow-up, 'Wellington | Te Upoko O Te Ika', in late 2019. Both records have been critically acclaimed with Graham Reid calling Lake an electro-folk postcard poet of his doubting generation.

Praise for Lake South's previous work:

A titanic talent – The Revue.ca

It's a ripper! – the Zappa hating Grant Smithies

Earnest and acutely observed nostalgia turns into uplifting anthems time and again – Alex Behan (Sunday Star Times)

Gorgeous pop gems...deft, heartfelt, funny – NZ Musician Magazine

Recommended for both the misunderstood thinkers searching for meaning as they traverse this new world, and the shallow casuals looking to avoid it. Five out of five – music.net.nz

Complex, interesting, prematurely nostalgic . . . yet capturing the zeitgeist for his generation – Elsewhere Music blog

Smart lyrics, tasteful synth and a distinct New Zealand accent – The Wild Honey Pie

Nostalgic, elegiac synth-pop meditations on what it means to be a 20/30-something in modern Aotearoa – National Library of NZ

Encore un bien bel album à se mettre entre les oreilles! – ziklibrenbib.fr
