The Broken Heartbreakers, led by songwriters Rachel Bailey and John Guy Howell, have announced they're heading on a seven-date tour of Aotearoa this October and November. Check out the dates here and grab your tickets from Under The Radar and Moshtix (Wellington):
Just before the tour, The Broken Heartbreakers will be releasing a new single called We're All Looking Up, out October 1st.
The song is centred around the North East Valley of
Ōtepoti Dunedin where the band all reside, and the diverse community that lives there under the protection of Kapukataumahaka (Mt Cargill).
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.’”
Particularly relevant in the current climate. While you wait for We're All Looking Up on October 1st, check out their 2015 album How We Got To Now:
