Hurts乐团，载乘复数的伤感因子，搭配冰冷的电子音场，同时贴附曼彻斯特摇滚风采。主唱是Theo Hutchcraft，出生于英国北约克郡，从小就跟随家人待过澳洲、中东等国家，在音乐的想法上，也颇具世界观。身兼吉他、鼓手与电子乐手的Adam Anderson，祖父曾于英国女王面前演奏班卓琴，同时在战争时期担当表演劳军者，也让Adam从小就跟音乐结下不解之缘。2005年的圣诞节前夕，Theo和Adam各自与朋友相聚在同一家夜店，但是，彼此的友人在店门口一言不合打起来，两人却在一旁兴奋的聊起音乐。就这样别人打的伤痕累累，他们却快乐的遇到知己，Hurts也就一拍即合的羽化成型。回到家后，他俩开始利用网路互动合作，Adam先编好背景乐器的伴奏，再寄出由Theo配唱录制，最后完成共通合作的原始DEMO带。
签入RCA Records旗下后，Hurts顺利推出首张大碟《Happiness》，其中序幕曲《Silver Lining》，挟带大量电子线条来回穿绕，一种冷酷的氛围冻结四周空气，搭配Theo不过分的真假音漂亮转换，唯美动听的令人爱不释手，最后倒灌哥德式音场作结尾，有股不寒而栗之感；登记德国亚军+奥地利Top7+丹麦NO.8的〈Wonderful Life〉，将时空拉回80年代Synth-Pop荣景，其中拼贴Upbeat Dance+Pop+Disco元素的Disco Lento风格，更是充分运用于曲目里头；刻画凄美爱恋图像的《Blood, Tears & Gold》，似乎琴键每弹一音，心就跟著纠结更为紧绷，呈现一支催泪指数满点的歌谣；第一波主打《Better Than Love》，鲜明的节拍不断敲打，激发听众随乐摇摆的欲望，已抢先占据英国舞曲榜第6名位置；略带深沉的《Devotion》，除了包裹Hurts拿手的晦暗频率外，特别邀请性感女神Kylie Minogue助唱，收起娇甜的演绎方式，散发个性冷调声韵，不禁联想到Kylie于1995年和怪杰Nick Cave合作精采实验极品《Where The Wild Roses Grow》。
2010年初BBC的Sound of 2010票选中，Hurts名列最具前景的新进艺人第4，并且新专辑还幸邀到Kylie Minogue的献声。
2015年发行单曲《Some Kind of Heaven》《Rolling Stone》《Slow》《Wish》等，10月发行录音室专辑《Surrender》和单曲《S.O.S.》。
Hurts are an English synthpop duo formed in 2009, consisting of singer Theo Hutchcraft and synthesist Adam Anderson. Their first two albums, ‘Happiness’ and ‘Exile’, both reached the top ten in the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, and Finland.
Hutchcraft (born 30 August 1986 in Richmond) and Anderson (born 14 May 1984 in Manchester) met outside the 42nd Street nightclub in Manchester in November 2005, whilst their friends got involved in a fight.Too drunk to join in, they began discussing music instead; realising they had similar tastes, they decided to start a band. Over the next few months, they exchanged music and lyrics via e-mail, before forming Bureau in March 2006. They performed their first gig as a quintet in May at The Music Box in Manchester, and were shortly afterwards signed to independent record label High Voltage Sounds. They released their first double A-side single "After Midnight"/"Dollhouse" in November, which was made Single of the Week on Xfm. In 2007, Bureau disbanded and soon after Hutchcraft and Anderson formed the band Daggers. They signed to Label Fandango and in October released another double A-side single, "Money"/"Magazine", which, despite failing to chart, was nominated for the Popjustice £20 Music Prize.
Throughout 2008, Daggers continued to build a following and began working with producers Biff Stannard and Richard X, but after a disastrous A&R showcase in London in September, Theo and Adam returned to Manchester to reflect on the band's future. They recorded a mournful ballad called "Unspoken" together and they immediately realised that this was the sound that they wanted to develop as a duo. After informing the rest of the band that it was finished, they went on a short break to Verona in Italy, where they claim they discovered a musical genre called "Disco Lento". Daggers split on 30 January 2009.
Now called Hurts, the duo recorded an amateur music video for a song called "Wonderful Life", with a female dancer who had responded to an advert they placed in a post office in Manchester, who was paid £20 for her time. After uploading the video to their YouTube channel on 21 April 2009, it quickly went viral. The video has since had over 21 million views on YouTube, putting it in the Top 200 Most Watched Videos in the history of the website. In July the band was signed to Sony subsidiary RCA Records as well as RCA imprint Major Label Records, run by their old friend Biff Stannard.Although Theo and Adam had decided to not to do any gigs until they had enough songs, they began uploading demos to their Myspace page, and on 27 July 2009, they were named Band of the Day by ‘The Guardian’.
2010 began with Hurts finishing fourth on the Sound of 2010 poll, behind Ellie Goulding, Marina and the Diamonds and Delphic.On 7 January, Zane Lowe premiered the song "Blood, Tears & Gold" as his "Hottest Record in the World",and another self-made music video debuted online three days later. Having released a limited edition 12" vinyl picture disc of the Arthur Baker remix of "Wonderful Life" on 18 January, Hurts performed their first ever gig as Hurts on 22 January at the Michalsky Stylenite in Berlin, followed by St Phillips Church in Salford on 22 February.In October, Hurts embarked on their first full headline UK tour, performing in Brighton, Leeds, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and London.
Hurts embarked on their first full European tour in October 2011, performing in Ukraine, Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Lithuania, Estonia, Finland, Russia, Belarus, Serbia, Croatia, Italy, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Republic of Macedonia and the UK.On 4 November 2011, Hurts played their last show of their 'Happiness Tour' at Brixton Academy where Kylie Minogue joined them on stage to perform "Devotion" and "Confide in Me".
In September 2012, Hurts confirmed that recording of their next album was underway, with producer Jonas Quant.Their second studio album, ‘Exile’, was available on 11 March 2013. ‘Exile’ was released on 8 March 2013, achieving a top ten position in ten countries worldwide, debuting at number three in Germany and number nine in the UK. "Blind" was released as the second single on 20 May, and "Somebody to Die For" followed as the third on 21 July. With the release of "Somebody to Die for" they included a cover version of "Ohne Dich" from the German band Selig. The band continued their Exile Tour across Europe in October and November 2013 and March 2014.
In May 2015, Hurts released a new single titled "Some Kind of Heaven". The release was produced with long-term collaborator, Jonas Quant.On 15 June, the album title was announced via their Facebook page. It was released on 9 October.
On 6 Oct 2015, Hurts released the music video "Wish" directed by Bryan Adams.
The band began “Surrender Tour” in 2016.
