UK duo Hurts are back less than 2 years after the release of their underrated third LP Surrender with a brand new single called Beautiful Ones. The euphoric taster for album number four sure doesn’t hang around, quickly emerging from verse one which sets the tone about holding your heads high (shades of Kris Allen’s Vision of Love), before it unleashes a corralling chorus. Yup. It’s a pocket sized, stadium-filler with a big heart and, in its 3min running time, it also manages to find time to chuck in an arena-ready chant (“we are, we are, we are the beautiful ones…”) complete with searing electric guitar instrumental and atmospheric BVs.
