True lovers of everything dark and mysterious, rejoice: Hurts is back!
The English duo — Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson — are readying their third record for later this year, and this week, they bring to us the album’s lead single: “Some Kind Of Heaven“
“I am ready for the rapture/ I am reaching for the light/ But my heart screams hallelujah when I hear your battle cry,” croons Theo in the opening before the song explodes into a much more massive sounding, arena-sized production than what we’ve come to expect from the duo. With that said, it’s still loaded with all of the sappy melodrama we’ve grown to love them for, but with a greater sense of radio-friendly pop anthemics.
With its bright piano chords, romantic strings, catchy chants and sparse tingles of modern electronica, “Some Kind Of Heavven” suggests that the upcoming record will be a lot more satisfying than their 2013 sophomore album Exile. A great start – What do you guys think?
