New Video Alert - Hurts - Blind

After teasing 30 seconds of the video earlier this week, Theo tweeted the full video this morning for Blind one of SCPs favorite tracks and the second single off Hurts awesome new album Exile. The video clip was shot in Spain and is directed by renowned filmmaker Nez, with the treatment for the video being written by Hurts themselves telling a dark twisted love story. Opening in a wedding scene that turns into a gun heist at a church,
then see’s Theo Hutchcraft’s love story with his blonde bride as they depict the songs lyrics that love is like a drug yet also destructive and how you never want to see when love is not beautiful. 

Whilst filming the video Theo nearly lost his eye when he fell down a flight of stairs and punctured his face on an iron gate. Ouch! Speaking of the incident he said "I was running and I fell from the top of the stairs all the way down and into an iron gate. I had eight stitches and nearly had no eye. It was quite horrible." Ewwww!

In our recent review of their new album Exile, we noted how brilliant Blind is, starting with a great “Wewe-o-wew-o woooo, wewe-o,wewe-o, wooo” that undercuts throughout the song in this mid-tempo 90’s high energy ballad that then explodes into a soaring huge chorus, which is pure electro-pop perfection.
