Hurts – Lights

Hurts

Hurts

Hurts returns with the incredible video for ‘Lights’, the latest single taken from Hurts’ forthcoming album, ‘Surrender’ (out worldwide on 9 October).

Produced by Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Haim, Beyoncé), ‘Lights’ is a startling dose of modern, well crafted, disco pop.

The seven-minuted video by Dawn Shadforth (Kylie Minogue, Björk, Goldfrapp, Florence + the Machine, Primal Scream) follows two outsiders having a contemporary Saturday Night Fever moment together. That is until it all kicks off…but they don’t let a bit of fighting spoil their fun.

It is probably one of their best videos yet.

Pre-sale tickets for upcoming European tour available here.

Sounds like: Depeche Mode, Brandon Flowers, X&Y, Young Empires, Polyna, Kylie Minogue, Florence + the Machine,

Back and meaning business is Little Boots (aka Victoria Hesketh) with her new track, ‘Better In The Morning’

‘Better In The Morning’ is “an ode to ‘the walk of shame’, the morning after the night before”.

We are not entirely convinced that things are better in the morning, but we certainly love the track!

The catchy number was produced by Grammy Award winning producer Ariel Rechtshaid (Haim, Madonna, Charli XCX) and has been taken from her third album, ‘Working Girl’, which is out on 10 July via On Repeat Records. Pre-order on iTunes.

Lovely 19 year old Rae Morris is from Blackpool, UK.
