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,

X&Y – Rocket Science

X&Y

X&Y

X&Y is Ben (21, keyboard and vocals), Ash (22, guitar) and Rhys (21, drums) from London, Brighton and Wales (in no particular order).

The trio has been busy in the studio with music royalty; Toby Gad (Beyonce, John Legend, Madonna), Josh Record, Johnny Coffer (Emeli Sande, Gorgon City), Nexus (Lana Del Rey, Hurts), and Until The Ribbon Breaks.

New track ‘Rocket Science’ is a type of pop the radio stations and TV channels have been missing of late. Real, ballad-infused, indie pop.

Have a listen.

Sounds like: Temple Trap, Tove Lo, Cloud Fighter, Emeli Sande, Elle Eyre, Hurts, Until The Ribbon Breaks, John Legend, Josh Record, James Bay
