The Sound of: Hurts


The BBC's Sound of 2010 highlights the most exciting musical talent for the new year and the artists have been picked by 165 UK-based tastemakers.

They each named their favourite three new acts and those with the most votes were put on the list.

This week we reveal the top five - and at number four is Hurts, a duo from Manchester who construct melancholic 1980s-inspired electro-pop.

Here the band's Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson reveal their aspirations for the coming year and how much it cost to make their music video.
