Over noirishly simmering synths, frontman Theo Hutchcraft tells the story of a suicidal man saved from jumping off the Severn Bridge by the strike of love at first sight. The rest, quite frankly, speaks for itself. Classy video? Check. Haunting vocals? You got 'em. Epic instrumental breakdown two-thirds of the way through? Seriously, it's all here. On paper they could be accused of simply hopping on the 80's revival bandwagon, but Hurts are in fact on the cusp of igniting modern British synth-pop in an original and altogether more intelligent manner. Fence-sitters, it's time for your move please.
