“Don’t let go

Never give up,

It’s such a WONDERFUL LIFE!”

HAPPINESS (2010) & EXILE (2013) sunt niste albume GENIALE! Si o spun la modul cel mai serios! Fiecare melodie ocupa un loc aparte in mintea si inima mea! De regula, dintr-un album de 12 melodii, daca ajungi sa adori 6 melodii e bine, insa la Hurts nu e cazul! Toate imi plac si toate le ascult cu drag in masina, la sala, la birou, oriunde apuc 3 minute consecutive!

Asadar, Hurts a revenit pentru a treia oara in concert in Romania, la Bucuresti, la Romexpo. Concertul din 11 octombrie 2013 a facut parte din “The Exile Tour”. A fost o buna perioada in care s-a tot vorbit despre Theo Hutchcraft si Adam Anderson, membrii formatiei, motiv pentru care ne-au onorat cu prezenta si in Fratelli Studio (Bucuresti, 2011) si Summer Well (Domeniul Stirbei, Buftea, 2012). 2013 a fost anul meu!

In deschidere, au cantat cei de la trupa YellLow, de care, sincera sa fiu, nu auzisem pana atunci. Un ritm electro-pop mi-a captat atentia pe cand eram la bar (hihi) si chiar am recunoscut beat-ul melodiilor Crimson” si Scream”.

Au urmat baietii de la Grimus, o trupa care a cantat in deschiderea unor concerte cu nume mari, precum Placebo (2012) sau Red Hot Chilli Peppers (2012). Piesa de final, High a adus-o in prim plan pe Laura Cosoi, protagonista videoclipului care a rulat pentru prima oara pe ecranele din Romexpo.

La exact 21:30, a inceput nebunia! A SE NOTA – N E B U N I A! Cei doi au intrat pe scena alaturi de ceilalti instrumentisti, concertul efectiv incepand pe ritmurile melodiei Exile, nume ce da si titlul ultimului album lansat. Daca stiti melodia, va puteti da seama cam ce energie si ce panica si-a luat mai toata lumea. “Exile” este o declaratie de maturitate, ingloband corelatii despre viata, moarte, fapte si motive existentiale, deci TOTUL IN DOAR UN CUVANT.

Direct in vene mi s-a dus ritmul piesei, lucru pe care energizantul nu a fost capabil sa-l faca. Theo a fost energic, iar Adam a avut o prezenta eleganta si tacuta. Baietii au un stil vestimentar de efect, prin simplitate si nimic mai mult. De regula, tinutele lor sunt simple:

  1. Camasa alba si pantaloni negri eleganti (Theo) + camasa alba cu manecile suflecate, pantaloni negri si bretele (Adam).
  2. Maleta neagra, sacou elegant negru si pantaloni negri (Theo) + maleta neagra, vesta neagra si pantaloni negri (Adam).
  3. Parul si-l aranjeaza in cateva minute, la un un frizer marocan din Manchester, UK pentru doar 5 lire. Si sunt mandri de asta!

Dupa cum observati, culorile preferate de ei sunt albul si negrul in diferite combinatii. Nici de aceasta data, cei doi nu au facut exceptie: Adam a avut o tinuta ALL BLACK + trench (sinistru, dar sexy), Theo – camasa alba, vesta neagra, sacou negru + o capa (impunatoare si misterioasa). Scena arata de-a dreptul dramatic, cu numele trupei inscriptionat pe un fundal negru gigantic. Vocea angelica a lui Theo a fost muuuuuult mai buna decat pe CD sau pe YouTube, iar talentul lui Adam de a canta la pian sau la chitara este impresionant.

BUT IT GETS BETTER! Show-ul de lumini violent a culminat cu momentul in care Theo a distrus (#sexy) stativul pentru microfon pe un pasaj instrumental rock din mijlocul unei balade. Lumea a ramas masca, insa momentul a fost pe cat de socant, pe atat de pasional si atractiv, mai ales pentru fetele din primul rand care si-au rupt corzile vocale.

BETTER AND BETTER! Solistul a purtat in jurul gatului tricolorul tarii si a interpretat piesa Stay”, de care publicul nu se mai satura si au cerut bis! Mai toata lumea a plans la piesa asta, inclusiv sora mea Gabriela (Sorry sis, I had to say it!). Versurile in sine te loveau direct in inima.

BETTER THAN LOVE IS … ACTUAL LOVE! Pe parcursul intregii seri, carismaticul Theo a oferit publicului numerosi trandafiri albi, familiari deja in cadrul concertelor Hurts si a multumit publicului in limba romana in repetate randuri.

THE PLAYLIST:Wonderful Life“, “Illuminated”, Stay, “Miracle, Somebody to die for, Sandman, BlindThe Road, “Blood, Tears and Gold, Silver Lining, Unspoken” si Sunday (videoclip filmat in Romania), “Better than love (videoclip filmat in Romania, in care apare si Laura Cosoi) si muuulte altele.

<TRUE STORY> Theo si Adam se intalnesc intr-un club de noapte din Manchester in 2005. In timpul acelei nopți, beti fiind, ei ajung sa se cunoasca si sa vorbeasca despre muzica, realizand ca au lucruri in comun. Prin urmare, decid sa formeze o trupa, iar eu sunt fericita pentru asta! Melodiile lor apartin genului muzical synthpop si sunt intense, emblematice, impresionante, iar videoclipurile sunt atat de bine gandite incat, cand crezi ca i-ai dat de capat, apare un element care te duce in cealalta directie. Oricum, viitoarele melodii necesita o noua “depresie” pentru cei doi, pentru a iesi mai geniale ca cele scoase pana acum. Zic eu!

“Another second in the SUNSHINE,

A decade in the dark taking part in a DREAM.

Have you forgotten what she looks like?

Or do you only SEE what you want to BELIEVE?”

HAPPINESS (2010) & EXILE (2013) are two BRILLIANT music albums! And I really mean it! Each and every song has a special place in my mind and heart! Usually, out of 12 songs from a music album, you don’t really like more than 6 of them, but with Hurts is not the case! I love them all and I take advantage of every 3 minutes in a row, just to listen their songs: in my car, at the gym, in the office!

Therefore, Hurts came back in Romania for the third time, at Romexpo, Bucharest. The concert was scheduled on October 11th, 2013 and Romania was one of the list of the countries where they had “The Exile Tour”. The band has unlimited number of fans, that’s why Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson came in Fratelli Studio (Bucharest, 2011) and in the line-up of Summer Well (Buftea, 2012). 2013 was my year of glory!

The YellLow Band performed at the opening of Hurts, a band I’ve never heard of until then. An electro-pop rhythm caught my attention while I was at the bar (hihi) and I even remembered the beat of Crimson” and Scream”.

Afterwards, Grimus, the band that opened the concerts of famous artists like Placebo (2012) or Red Hot Chilli Peppers (2012) performed for a full hour before Hurts hit the stage. The final song, High brought into the light the beautiful actress Laura Cosoi, the leading role from the video.

At 09:00 PM sharp, the madness began! PLEASE NOTE – M A D N E S S! The two members of the band performed along with the other instrumentalists. The show started with the song Exile, the name of their album. If you remember the specific song, you can even imagine the energy of the crowd. “Exile” is a statement of maturity, where life, death and certain feelings are all-in-one. EVERYTHING IN JUST ONE WORD!

The rhythm of the song got into my veins, and not even the energy drink could do that. Theo was energetic, and Adam had an elegant and quiet figure, as usual. The boys have a particular style, based on simplicity and nothing more. Usually, their outfits are quite simple:

  1. White shirt and black elegant pants (Theo) + white shirt with the sleeves rolled up, black pants and suspenders (Adam).
  2. Black turtleneck, black elegant blazer and black pants (Theo) + black turtleneck, black vest and black pants (Adam).
  3. A Moroccan hairstylist fixes their hair before every show. He is from Manchester, UK and he does it for only 5 pounds. And they are proud of it!

As you already noticed, their favorite colors are black and white, in different combinations. This time was exactly the same! Adam had an outfit ALL BLACK + a trench (sinister, but sexy), Theo – white shirt, black vest, black blazer + a cape (impressive and mysterious). The stage was dramatic, with the name of the band imprinted on the giant black background. Theo’s voice was waaaaaay better than on CD or YouTube, and Adam’s talent playing the piano and the guitar was outstanding.

BUT IT GETS BETTER! The lighting show was pretty violent and I loved it! At some point, Theo got into the mood and “destroyed” (#sexy) the microphone stand on an instrumental rock song. The crowd was amazed, and the moment was as shocking as it can get, also passionate and hot, especially for the girls in the first row who screamed louder than anyone there.

BETTER AND BETTER! Theo had around his neck our flag and performed the song Stay. The crowd wanted more, shouting “one more time” and they even cried on this song, including my sister Gabriela (Sorry sis, I had to say it!). The lyrics were more powerful than never!

BETTER THAN LOVE IS … ACTUAL LOVE! The whole show, Theo threw white roses in the crowd and expressed his gratitude to the audience in our language.

THE PLAYLIST:Wonderful Life“, “Illuminated”, Stay, “Miracle, Somebody to die for, Sandman, BlindThe Road, “Blood, Tears and Gold, Silver Lining, Unspoken” si Sunday (video filmed in Romania), “Better than love (video filmed in Romania, where the star is the actress Laura Cosoi).

<TRUE STORY> Theo and Adam met in 2005 in a nightclub in Manchester. During that night, while they were drunk, they got to know each other and they started to talk about music. Therefore, they decided to form the band Hurts, and I am truly happy for that! Their songs belong to a specific type of music called synthpop and they are intense, impressive, quite charming, and the videos are emotional and smart, from a different point of view, not the one you can predict! Either way, the future songs need a new “depression”, just to be more brilliant than the ones they already have. As I would say!





<Hurts> pe repeat! Voua va place?
