Hearts are Breaking
Drawing on a love and appreciation for the timeless charms of Britain's great northern songwriters and poets - James Skelley, Steven Patrick Morrissey, John Cooper Clarke - High Hazels are a young quartet from Sheffield who release their debut single 'Hearts Are Breaking' via Heist or Hit Records. Fronted by James Leesley, High Hazels include Anthony Barlow on percussion, brother Paul Barlow on bass and guitarist Scott Howes. Together this quartet of school-friends create shimmering guitar music that weaves the dry, lyrical candour of The Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon through songs rich in melody yet underpinned with a brooding psychedelia that owes as much to the influence of Washington quintet The Walkmen as to their home city's crooning Godfather Richard Hawley.
