Hurts' Well-Groomed Gloom

Adam Anderson and Theo Hutchcraft of Hurts attend a party hosted by Emporio Armani to celebrate their final performance of their European tour at 50 St James in London on November 4th, 2011.

Simply put, Hurts are the most stylish band in the world right now. Best of all, it's obvious they were born that way. A perfect amalgam of Hedi Slimane's slick shadow-goth appeal and Anton Corbijn's Ian Curtis-obsessed empire of doomy beauty, the videos and photo shoots that Hurts produce gain as much attention as their reliably epic, synth-laden pop dirges. With "Wonderful Life," the debut single that remains the band's chief calling card and most spectacular video moment, they introduced the idea that terrifically handsome men, Kraftwerkian sparity and extremely depressing lyrics still have a home in pop music. Not shockingly, they are immensely popular in Germany.
