K. J. O’Hara is a British singer-songwriter who has received quite a bit of online hype recently, and for good reason!

The Hurting Kind is a folk ditty with a gritty americana feel to it, reminding us of Bruce Springsteen at his most heartfelt and tender. It’s quite a skeletal song, and it’s very subtle (consisting purely of O’Hara’s soft vocals and acoustic guitar), but it doesn’t really need any more to it, with the track showing O’Hara bearing his soul to the world in a most passionate way.

Take a listen to the track below, and see if you don’t feel anything!
