XUK's second album is a solo venture of singer/songwriter Simon Holden. It signals a departure from the band's original blend of 70’s classic rock and symphonic styles to a harder-edged, textural landscape populated with soaring guitars, keyboards, pounding drums and Simon’s signature “Bowie-esque” vocals. “U” explores relationship themes that hark back to the band’s debut album with the songs “Tomorrow/Today”, “Café Lyon” and “Forest of Dreams” but also explores the individual’s role in today’s polarized world with songs like “Weird People”, “The Show” and the title track “U”. Play it LOUD - and sing along!
