Hurts debut single Better Than Love was a nice little hit all across the continent, and the follow up Wonderful Life – with an optimistic chorus which contrasts sharply with verses describing crying, rain and suicideplans – was a massive smash. Most played on Danish radio in 2010, a top 20 hit in 11 European countries and #50 in the year-end chart of European hits in 2010. Their album Happiness is chock-a-block full of hits, and even features pop-princess Kylie Minogue’s vocals. Happiness was top ten in the UK, Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland and Poland, picking up gold and platinum awards along the way.
Hurts are in the process of conquering the world, and as part of their European tour they visit Oslo, Norway on Sunday 6th March playing Rockefeller Music Hall. Visit the contest page for you chance to win tickets to the show!
