You wouldn’t hear such filth coming from The Heartbreaks. These nice boys (the sort you could take home to mum) are having a go at stringy indie (strindie?) on new single ‘Hand On Heart’, but a bit of violin won’t disguise the fact that every one of their songs sounds like a Gene B-side. And if you don’t remember Gene, they’re a band whose each and every song sounded like a Morrissey B-side. “Hand on heart, foot in mouth”, croons singer Matthew Whitehouse. “Corks in ears, bag over head,” thinks NME.
