Jimmy Brown - 5th Feb 2013

Making his first foray into music promos, Favourite Colour: Black – its the name commercials director Chris Turner is using for his vids – works with the mighty Hurts on this eyepopping, epic promo to Miracle, the first single from their second album Exile (out March 11).

FC:B marries the band’s widescreen synthpop with this dark and dramatic journey through a post-apocalyptic shopping mall, peppered with religious imagery and fearless half-clad dancers – beautiful, with loads of personality to boot – ending on a rooftop with the Hurts hashtag-like logo in flames. A highly impressive music video directing debut by anyone’s standards.
