HURTS – doom pop darlings
If there is one musical act that I am looking forward to break in 2010 it’s Manchester’s male doom-pop duo HURTS.
I am completely obsessed with their shoe-gazing 80′s synth/rock/pop/noir ‘n’ b sound, and their extremely minimalist approach to both their music and image fuels the intrigue.
I’ve had the two videos below on an insane loop,
and rumor has it the boys will come out with an album sometime in April.
I genuinely haven’t been this excited since Florence and The Machine, The XX and fellow Manchester lads Delphic.
Thank you Britannia once again for delivering the goods.
I am sorry as all we have to offer is Justin Beiber at the mo’
