It’s kind of bizarre to me that the original version of this was kicking around over 12 months ago and it still hasn’t been properly released yet. There are shrews whose entire life span is shorter than that. You could have watched the clip with a shrew when it was first uploaded to YouTube and told it, “You will literally die before this gets released.”
But regardless, HURTS are finally releasing their second single on August 16th with remixes from Arthur Baker and Mantronix. ‘Wonderful Life’ is cold, calculated, and instantly polarising, but it’s also an enviably slick piece of pop.
