WORK:
Hurts
"Lights"
Manchester synthpop duo Hurts take an assured step towards a more optimistic sound with this lengthy promo. Director Dawn Shadforth reflects the band's tonal shift as she lets inhibitions melt away under the strobe lights. Sensual and edgy, the chemistry shared by the two protagonists - including a magnetic Theo Hutchcraft - keeps us drawn to the screen as the funk-tinged track pulses along.
