Dunedin, you’re finally getting your chance to share in a decade’s worth of fine songs from a band described by respected music critic Graham Reid as “assured masters of their craft”.

Following the release and tour of critically acclaimed fourth album How We Got To Now in 2015, The Broken Heartbreakers retreated to the wings, the core songwriting duo of John Guy Howell and Rachel Bailey stepping out only occasionally for low-key gigs and supports slots for talented chums such as Nadia Reid and John White.

This makes the prospect of the first full-band gig in 18 months all the more enticing . . .

On Saturday, 27 May The Broken Heartbreakers play PLATO restaurant’s event room with a five-piece line-up that sees singer/guitarists Howell and Bailey joined by Jeff Harford (drums), Andrew Spittle (bass) and Shane Gilchrist (guitar) for a journey through the band’s full catalogue. That means songs from How We Got To Now (2015), Wintersun (2010), The Broken Heartbreakers (2007) and rare early album Everyone’s Waiting For Their Darlin’ (2006).

The opening slot on the night will be filled by dream-pop artist John White, whose 2016 album Henry Green and the Island of Tuliarts won hearts and minds with its fantastical themes and ethereal textures.
