Single Review – Hurts – Some Kind of Heaven

The Manchester synth-pop duo return with their first new material since their second album Exile in 2013, their new track ‘Some Kind of Heaven’ will undoubtedly feature on their upcoming third. Exile was an album that had only a linear improvement from their first, but a welcome change of tone with a darker and more atmospheric feel. A more significant shift is always required from a third attempt and with ‘Some Kind of Heaven’ they’ve retained delivered a more clearer and catchy sound whilst varying between this and the darker verses too. This works pretty well in that sense and pushes on the pop sensibility that was their making, even if at times it’s a little familiar. It remains an elegant and melodic piece of modern pop music that’s as stylish as their clothes.
