Hurts - “Better Than Love” (video)

[3 May 2010]

The hyper-pretentious ‘80s video is back!  Manchester dance-pop outfit Hurts use every trick in the vintage MTV playbook for their new clip, “Better Than Love”. It’s got the faux-arty pre-song-buildup, ala Duran Duran’s “New Moon on Monday”, the models look like Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love” hotties in drag, and singer Theo Hutchcraft has the face of a Kemp brother during Spandau Ballet’s heyday. In other words, it is 100 neon shades of awesome. Find more information here.
