You have to sympathize with the girl in the video for “Mistletoe.” You’re getting some one-on-one time over hot chocolate at the café with your main squeeze Justin Bieber, when all of a sudden, some blonde girl comes out of nowhere and puts her hands on him. Don’t you hate when that happens? (“What was that about?” she mouths.)
Her insecurity seems understandable: after all, girls love Justin Bieber. The song, then, is his way of letting his “shorty” know that she’s the only one he wants to see under the mistletoe (or, for that matter, in a drop-top Porsche). How committed is our crooning lover? Enough to park in the middle of the street and sing until she puts down the book she’s reading (which just so happens to be New Moon) and finds the gift he’s snuck into her bedroom. That’s devotion, especially from a guy still young enough to get away with a line like “I should be playing in the winter snow.” Ah, young love!

Evoking memories of the New Romantics and the electronic music movement of the eighties, Hurts have announced the release of A double A single featuring the tracks Illuminated along with the re-issued Better Than Love.
The bands debut Happiness entered the UK album charts at number 4 with over 25,000 sales making Hurts the UK’s fastest selling new band of 2010. They have now sold over 500,000 albums worldwide and in the UK, the album has been officially certified Gold.
Throughout Europe, Hurts also earned 14 top 10 iTunes positions including number one’s in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Finland and Luxembourg, and the album is now gold in the UK, Germany Russia, and Switzerland and Platinum in Poland.
Better Than Love was released as the bands first major single in May last year and has fast become a live favourite. Stated by Hurts as “dance music for depression”, Better Than Love is an upbeat yet dark single which will be released as a Double A Side alongside Illuminated. In stark contrast to Better Than Love, Illuminated is a slow and soft song that leads into a dramatic, emotive chorus.
Hurts – Better Than Love
Their single Wonderful Life has already had over 14 million online plays and in Europe has had great success with a number 1 airplay record in 5 countries to date including Germany, where the single has now sold over 400,000 copies and is certified Gold. Their success has also been matched in Poland where ‘Wonderful Life’ is also a Gold selling single.
Hurts ended 2010 with a bang after winning awards both in the UK and internationally. In Germany, they scooped the prestigious award for ‘Best International Newcomer’ at the Bambi’s (the German BAFTAs) and in the UK, The Sun awarded them the award for ‘Best Bizarre Session of 2010’. They also recently won the award for ‘Best New Band’ at the NME Awards and are nominated for Best International Newcomer at the Echo Awards in Germany next week.
Hurts are currently on a sell-out European tour following their sold out shows in the UK in February. They will be performing their first ever US show at Coachella next month followed by tour dates across Asia, before heading home for a busy summer of festival performances including V Festival, Isle of Wight, T in the Park, Oxegen and Dot To Dot.
The double A side single Illuminated/ Better Than Love is released by Hurts on May 2nd
