Hurts - MiracleThree years since their debut record, British synthpop duo, Hurts, are back with a brand new album and a hot new single, "Miracle". Have they gotten better since their last album though?

It's the instrumentation for "Miracle" that grabs the listener right off the bat. The melody is, at times, almost hypnotic and the lyrics convey such a deep sense of hurt and betrayal yet there's a cautious optimism that pierces through the grimy, dark track as the protagonist declares his search for a miracle. The verses transition so seamlessly into the chorus and the overall product is simply a powerful work of art. This is one of their best songs yet.
