Single Review – HURTS – Slow

A fourth single from the Manchester/Teesside electro pop duo HURTS’ upcoming third album Surrender (expected on October 9th) has been released and ‘Slow’ shifts back to the more theatrical, electronically tinged pop that was offered up with their previous single ‘Rolling Stone’. Their current single opens with bursts of grinding synths and snapping drum samples which allows for a subtle environment for Theo Hutchcraft’s vocals to stray in and out of audible focus and to go on to deliver a more powerful tone into the more echoed and drawn out chorus and typical pop high pitched vocals. It’s not a track of great purpose and struggles to reach a great conclusion, without being remaining intricate and detailed. It is however a well produced track, but one of the lesser singles of the album.
