Hurts show you their 'Blood, Tears and Gold' - watch the video now

Music elitists:  You have a new band to promote and go on and on about until people start listening to you, they become popular, and you are forced to hate them for "selling out."

The duo Hurts have been making some waves recently, and 'the blogs' continue to buzz about them even though they're not exactly the most mainstream sounding band vying for listeners' attention at the moment.  This video for non-single-but-sort-of-single 'Blood, Tears and Gold,' however, proves that given a chance (we're looking at you, Radio 2) the guys just might break through.  By 'break through,' of course, we mean score a number 33 also-ran and top the Belgian iTunes Electro-Alternative Synth EP chart        for  a couple hours on a Sunday, but it is what it is.

Anyhow, readers, if you're looking for an early week pick-me-up, go watch Gabriella Cilmi's new video again.  But if you're in the market for a moody and surprisingly touching synth ballad, we've got just the clip for you.
