Hurts Crank Up The Angst In Their "Stay" Video

Hurts' video for new single "Stay" is as dramatic as their previous clips for "Better Than Love" and "Wonderful Life," only this time the Manchester duo have swapped out the raven-haired dancing girls from the latter for a pack of twirling blonde babes.

I love how soaked with angst and urgency everything these two do is. "Wonderful Life" peaked at #21 on the UK chart but hung around within the Top 40 for awhile. And now that they have a hit album (which reached #4) on their debonair hands, hopefully ballad "Stay" (officially out as a single November 15) will be the smash that truly breaks them through to the mainstream.

Must say, can't help feeling there's something very "Europa And The Pirate Twins" about this video.
