Pop duo Hurts have proclaimed their third studio record 'Surrender' a 'big pop album' that was inspired by their fun in the sun.

The synth-pop duo - comprised of singer Theo Hutchraft and synthesist Adam Anderson - have spent the past year enjoying "fun" destinations which have influenced their most "bold" pop album to date.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz about the record, which is available from today (09.10.15), singer Theo revealed: "We wanted to make a big pop album. you know? A big bold statement of an album. 

"When you go to LA and Ibiza, and to New York as well, it's just non-stop. And those places are fun. It's just life's great and I think it's an interesting food to put in your music ... When we made it, it was just us enjoying ourselves. We set out with this plan of not wanting to make music in the rain in Manchester. So we said, 'What would happen, if we went to the sunshine, had a great time and just let the music come out?' We make music with aspirations. But the weirdest thing about it is that we're normal. We're not weird, we're fun. And those places brought it out in us."


But the peddlers of melodramatic pop stuck in a few darker tracks for good measure, including 'Police', and the 29-year-old 'Lights' singer insisted they haven't forgotten their Yorkshire roots.

He added: "Because of where we come from, I'm often drawn to people who've had tragedy, but a strong outlook. Where I grew up, it was difficult for people and it was hard to get out of that. So I like those stories and I like those stories, I like romanticising things."
