London-based punk pop band Breakup Haircut has announced they have signed to Reckless Yes ahead of new music in 2021.
Formed at First Timers Festival in 2019 the band released a debut EP through Hell Hath No Fury Records and have thrilled live at their own gigs and supporting Big Joanie.
Loud Women described them as having, “the kooky quirkiness of early Television Personalities or Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers, with a side order of Shonen Knife” while Joyzine enthused about that first EP saying it, “honours the traditions of the lo-fi DIY music scene, going back though riot grrrl, college rock and C86, but bringing it bang up to date.”
On joining Reckless Yes the band said, “We’re really excited to be joining Reckless Yes – it’s a testament to the DIY scene that we’ve been able to release on labels that match our values, and that we’ll continue to be able to do so with this partnership.”
Reckless Yes co-founder Sarah Lay said, “I fell in love with this band as soon as I heard them with the debut EP, What Did You Expect? I Got It Off The Internet!, all feeling and zero fucks, snarling yet witty lyrics, driving bass and powerful punk pop melody. It’s a pretty perfect 5-track vortex of influences and fast-living with a slacker aesthetic.
“We’re so pleased we can support them with their next release, with their development as artists, and help to introduce more people to this wonderful band.”
Reckless yes co-founder Pete Darrington said, “Breakup Haircut create the most joyous lo-fi noise pop racket imaginable. It only took a handful of songs to convince us they were something very special, and that’s rare – usually we stalk a band for ages before deciding to work with them!
“Imagine the Shangri-La’s covering Pavement and you’re halfway there. Not the first band we’ve picked up from First Timers Festival, there’s definitely something in the water there!”
