LOVEBREAKERS – from Birmingham, England. Formed by Jack, Christian, Chino & Nathan.
Bright and sunny and positively beaming with power-pop radiance, it’s a bit Artic Monkeys, a bit Replacements, maybe a touch Pixies, the kind of record that sweeps you along helplessly on wave after (new) wave of melody and hooky choruses.” – Classic Rock
The debut record Primary Colours is like a blur of The Ramones style energy and melody with a dark, gritty story teller nature akin to Elvis Costello or The Clash. ‘Primary Colours’ is just that, a wash with brightness and contrast, the songs vibrant nature jumps from the track and into the listeners ears, heart and mind. The confidence and songwriting ability is that of a band so much older and with a lot ‘more’ under its belt.
During the Summer of 2022, LOVEBREAKERS have been on the road supporting punk rock legends, Social Distortion across the UK and Europe.
