NME (Magazine) - "'Surrender' begins with a stirring gospel-tinged intro and features some of the most euphoric pop songs Hutchcraft and Anderson have ever written."
Clash (magazine) - "Here on album three, SURRENDER, the duo front up with what they truly want to be: a really big pop act. Like, a really, really big pop act."
The third full-length album from Britain's Hurts, 2015's Surrender, showcases more of the duo's transfixing synth pop. Centered on the talents of vocalist Theo Hutchcraft and instrumentalist Adam Anderson, Hurts have built a loyal following with their distinctive, highly dramatic, '80s-influenced sound and style. Surrender follows up the group's acclaimed sophomore album, 2013's Exile, and once again finds them working with longtime Swedish producer Jonas Quant. Also collaborating with Hurts on Surrender are producers Stuart Price (Madonna, the Killers) and Ariel Rechtshaid (Haim, Vampire Weekend). Included on Surrender is the lead single "Some Kind of Heaven." ~ Matt Collar
