HURTS - Wonderful Life (Arthur Baker Remix)

I love when things work out in coincidentally seamless fashion. Here I am drafting a post about a truly terrific mix of HURTS' Wonderful Life, and the beacon of chart-topper knowledge, Popjustice, has just unleashed a new video for an as-yet-to-be-determined single, Blood, Tears & Gold.

Hurts
 

Here's the thing. HURTS is one of those beastly rarities that I get super selfish about. The minimistically-artistic UK duo are so good that I don't want to share. But, in a moment of charitable execution, away we go.

I first fell for Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson's novel nuances when the video for their debut single, Wonderful Life, first fell into Beastonia mid-last year. The black-and-white cinematography, along with Hutchcraft's distinct vocals, grab hold of your heart and never let go as the song courses through your veins. Watch here, (oh shucks it's since been marked private!) then check out my equation for how rad these boys are below.


(Sinead O'Connor + George Michael ballads) - (religion x parking lots) = HURTS


It's all so painstakingly gorgeous. HURTS will spend February not coming to the US and honoring me an audience with 'em, but if you fancy yourself in the UK, check here for live date details.

If you like Hurts you should like Mirrors too, as they are part of this new UK genre, Pop Noir (or 'noir n b' as someone put it, lol). They're another UK band (from Brighton), destined for massive things. We have a selection of their tracks if you want?
