Video of the Moment #1893: Hurts

What are the odds that we’d have *two* bloody videos back to back for bank holiday weekend? I didn’t plan it like this, honest! First we had Gengahr‘s ‘Fill My Gums with Blood’, a song with a title just begging for that crimson bodily fluid to be pouring out in its promo.

But now in Hurts‘ new video ‘Lights’? Before we get there, though, there is plenty of dance floor posing ala Saturday Night Fever to go with the disco beats, and Theo Hutchcraft is wearing some very strange, high-waisted trousers. Then things start to get a lot violent…before Theo and his dancing partner head outside to London backstreets to start dancing as if they’re in Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’. I guess the message is that vampires like to dance too? Uh, okay. Watch the promo below.

The video for the far superior ‘Some Kind of Heaven’ (in my opinion, anyway) can be watched on this previous In the Post. ‘Surrender’, the third album from Hurts, will be released on the 9th of October on Sony. For more Hurts on TGTF, go here.
