Hurts still record all their songs in their bedroom in Manchester, Northern England
Hurts still record all their songs in their bedrooms.
The 'Miracle' duo - Adam Anderson and Theo Hutchcraft - stay true to the principles of the electronic artists of the 80s who they look up to and work on their music at home rather than a fancy studio.
Adam told the UK's Absolute Radio: "We're like bedroom recording artists me and Theo we make all our music in the bedroom. Every song we've ever written has been done in a bedroom.
"That's like the sort of mentality, it's like we've just met each other, we could have gone anywhere but we chose a bedroom in Rusholme [Manchester].
"You've got to wonder about our sort of sanity there."
The band have just released their second album, 'Exile' - which they admit has a darker tone to their first, 'Happiness' - and said they have lost one of their biggest fans in the process, in Theo's father.
Theo said: "One person that did not get this album is my dad. I think he was terrified. There's a section in the middle I think is quite sort of dark, I guess you'd say the darker sort of side of us and [it went] straight over his head. So we lost one fan, but hopefully we'll gain some more."
'Exile' is out now.
