Eyewear's Top Songs of 2012: #17 'Liar, My Dear' by The Heartbreaks

The Heartbreaks set themselves a big ask: to bring back the sort of skinny tie tunes that made Elvis Costello and Joe Jackson hip in the very end of the 70s; and their sound and look go far to showing their aim was true.  They catch a yearning, more traditional lyric pop style in this song, which I love for its sheer Englishness, and jangling guitars.
