Hurts

Surrender (Deluxe)

With their third album, Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson impressively re-bottle the flash of lightning that made their 2010 debut Happiness such a pure and surprising pop pleasure. Their unabashed “if it feels right, do it” philosophy is evident on the typically anthemic bombast of “Some Kind Of Heaven”, the unbuttoned late-night groove of “Lights”, gospel-tinged ballad “Wings” and closer “Policewoman”–a seductive electro slow jam that hints at a very different use for a pair of handcuffs.
