Hurts aren’t exactly the types to do things by halves. Their 2010 debut, Happiness, was chock-full of epic pop songs. Ambition is certainly one thing the duo seem to be short of.
It’s taken a while but 2013 sees their return, with new album Exile due for release in March.
‘Miracle’ is the first single to come from it, and in true Hurts fashion it is absolutely massive. Skyscraper hooks and a chanted chorus work well, and add up to a song that sounds like a sibling of Coldplay and Rihanna’s ‘Princess of China’.
Exile is due on 11th March.
