In the 80s – SynthPop drove pop music in the UK and Europe with the likes of the Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode, New Order, Erasure, Human League, Thompson Twins, etc. Ever wonder what it would sound like today?
From the UK, the duo of Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson make up HURTS. They have not made it across the pond over to the US yet, but everybody should listen to them. They use a mixture of uptempo beats and pop dance sounds.
You can read more on the group and get their discography on the Wiki.
Here’s a YouTube MV playlist:
