Heartbreak is a Disco, Italo disco, Electronic, Electro, Synth-pop duo composed of Ali Renault and Sebastian Muravchix.[1][2] Their music finds its strength through a juxtapose of Renault and Muravchix's respective background in Electro and Italo disco. Using their knowledge of the inner workings of music they created a hybrid genre that "will make the world dance with tears in their eyes, like bi-polar maniacs on the brink of an ecstatic panic attack!"[3]

Heartbreak's debut album Lies was released on the 29 September 2008 on Lex Records.

In honor of their inclusion in the NME Radar Tour Heartbreak compiled a free mixtape available for download. The mixtape featured the likes of The Horrors, Deux and Lucy Montenegro, and was available to listen to online.[4]

The album received mostly positive reviews and was ranked at number 50 on NME's Top 50 Albums Of 2008.
