The Hurt, an electronica, post punk, sound with Rikki Turner of Paris Angels teaming with Stephen Evans of Cabbage, co-write lyrics that have been called a brooding masterpiece, is set to release Sleeping from Blindside Records in May.

Dark and beautifully sinister, 'Sleeping' is a brooding masterpiece. Raw and pensive, it hisses and crackles with emotion. The song was co-written by Rikki Turner and Stephen Evans, the former was lead vocalist with Paris Angels who found fame in the early 1990s when they signed to Virgin Records, the latter is making waves with his new band Cabbage. 

Performed by Turner's musical collective The Hurt, 'Sleeping' follows the release of last summer's critically acclaimed debut 'Berlin'.

The Hurt
Sleeping 
Blindside Records 
12 May 2017

'Sleeping' is an epic and brooding masterpiece. Co-written by Rikki Turner (Paris Angels) and Stephen Evans of Cabbage, the song is dark and beautifully sinister; Lo-fi American Gothic meets Cave and Cohen. Turner's baritone is commanding yet vulnerable, perfectly complimented by the eerily beautiful backing vocals of Jaq Gallier against a backdrop of mournful strings. Polished and pristine have no place here, 'Sleeping' is raw and pensive, it hisses and crackles with emotion.

The single marks the return of prolific songwriter Rikki Turner and his musical collective The Hurt. Having spent the last eighteen months collaborating and co-producing on Manchester's dynamic music scene, Turner unveiled the products of these studio sessions with the release of Summer 2016's critically acclaimed new single 'Berlin' along with a free download of Nico's 'One Last Chance'.

Returning to the studio, March 2017 has seen him emerge once again to launch Blindside Records in conjunction with the enigmatic Lady D and Steve Balance, a familiar face on Manchester's music scene.
