Current synth-pop band from UK consisting of Theo Hutchcraft on Vocals and Adam Anderson on Electronics. Hailing form Manchester the two members were in the band Bureau then later went on to the Daggers. They have worked with talents such as Richard X and Richard Stannard. The hit song Wonderful Life Is filled with lush moody synths yet lyrically hits you with an optimistic message of never give up. After signing with Sony/BMG they are expected to release their debut album in 2010.
The live versions were quite painful (not literally) for me to aquire, so I hope you enjoy them! Listen below:

Hurts – Illuminated (Live At Maida Vale)
