With the guitar seemingly falling out of favour recently, this is a prime example of what we’d miss out on if we lose it. Capturing the jingly nature of 1980’s pop like The Smiths and The Cure, ‘Jealous Don’t You Know’ is a modern update, with the vocals of Matthew Whitehouse almost crooning over the top. Full of romantic longing and pleas, ending resolutely on the lyric “I’ll take my banged up Barbour jacket and leave”. Not the band’s strongest song to date, but given a festival atmosphere The Heartbreaks will be massive.
Jealous, Don’t you know is out on the 18th April on the band’s own label, ‘Morecambe Rock’ on Tri-Tone/PIASUK.
They kick off their UK tour this week so make sure you try and catch them!
