Manchester’s answer to Pet Shop Boys, Hurts peddle their bittersweet synthpop in machete-sharp suits. Their overblown last album Exile suggested they’re aiming to compete with the bombastic likes of Muse, but generally they’re able and entertaining enough with their nostalgia for the ’80s electro of Ultravox and Depeche Mode. Hear selections from their new album ‘Surrender’ tonight.
