The Broken Heartbreakers Unveil Single / Video 'We're All Looking Up'

Huge news day for those partial to the lovely folk stylings of The Broken Heartbreakers — the Ōtepoti five-piece have signed to Nadia Reid's hometown label Slow Time Records, announced their fifth studio album Imagine If We Could Just Keep Driving is on the way, and shared lush lead single 'We're All Looking Up'. Band members Rachel Bailey, John Guy Howell, Craig Monk, Angus McBryde and Paul McLennan-Kissel have brewed a honey-toned blend of uplifting acoustic and electric guitar, violin and viola on the new song, an ode to Kapukataumahaka (Mount Cargill) and the community that hums below it. Kristina Simons (aka Tina Turntables) captures the spirit of Kapukataumahaka and 'We're All Looking Up' in her hypnotising patchwork visuals, crowd sourcing pics of mugs, tea cups and the vivid Ōtepoti sunset. The Broken Heartbreakers tour Te Waka a Māui this month, with a hometown show tonight in the very community the song was written for. See where you can catch the band live below, and enjoy the bubbly new track 'We're All Looking Up'...
