Hue and Cry first made their mark in the late eighties with the hugely successful albums ‘Seduced and Abandoned’ and ‘Remote’, spawning smash hit singles such as ‘Labour of Love’, ‘Violently’, and ‘Looking For Linda’ along the way. Their award winning style of strongly written pop songs fused with a unique brand of soul brought them continued success as the band marched into the nineties releasing more acclaimed work including the chart-storming Top Ten album ‘Stars Crash Down’, amongst others.
After moving away from the pop mainstream to concentrate on other projects, the Kane brothers Pat and Greg returned in 2008 with their first pop album in sometime - the highly acclaimed album ‘Open Soul’ which boasted an energetic combination of the band’s classic pop soul sound and fresh, crisp, sometimes stripped down production.
Extensive UK touring supported the release of ‘Open Soul’, and in February 2009 a definitive selection of the band’s earlier work including hits, rare mixes, extended versions and B-sides was released, entitled ‘The Collection’.
Hue and Cry have been working on brand new material throughout 2010 that will see the light of day next year. In the mean time, a special presentation of the band’s live repertoire entitled ‘Bitter Suite, Again’ is being prepared for release at the end of this year.
