Review: unreality shout - Single Review: HURTS - 'Stay' (17.11.10)

Zitat :
By now, it doesn't take a musical genius, or even someone of high intelligence to see that HURTS are not the most commercial act out there. In fact, they're probably so un-commercial right now, calling them any kind of 'act out there' would be nothing short of optimistic. Their first single 'Better Than Love' failed to get promoted and despite being their best single to date, underperformed at #50. Then, upon releasing 'Wonderful Life', who's protagonist was a pre-suicidal man, they gained more recognition, but still failed to make the Top 20, charting just outside, at #21.

Some say it's because of their music, which consists of inaccessible lyrics, overtly melancholic tones and monochromic imagery, others believe it's due to them not being in the tabloids every week. But the truth is, it's a combination of both. Their personalities are hidden, buried somewhere underneath concrete faces of stone grey, with a vintage/retro tinge to their fashion sense.

Zitat :
If this gets promoted, I could see it being the breakthrough hit for HURTS. They've probably released this over better tracks on the album because it's the most sentimental, the most accessible and the most emotional. People can relate to this song, so in that way I guess you could call it more commercial, but it's a comforting thought to know 'Stay' hasn't compromised HURTS' trademark sound or the fans they had before this release.

Why do I stay sceptical??? Cool

Perhaps because the first quote doesn't go together with the second one...hidden personality and emotion - do people truly believe this??? Yeah - as long as they can project something into this personality...but if not, it gets difficult...as they say - it's commercial, it's for the masses...

The world around you might not be the one behind. United we stand, united we fall.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams die
Life is a broken winged bird
That cannot fly.
              (Langston Hughes)


If you need inspiration - dwell on the sounds and views of nature and feel the companionship of a horse - it lets you know what you are feeling before you even find words - and you do not need any...the world stands still and you are with you right now

Zitat :
Hurts: Stay (Sony Music)

WITH an exciting synth-pop sound, strong vocals and good use of gospel-choir harmonies, Hurts are set to become a huge pop act.

Although there’s nothing particularly new or original here, and the lyrics are typically predictable, the Richmond, Yorth Yorkshire and Manchester duo do what they do best.
