Described by Tom from The Enemy as "Moby meets Scarface", Hitchcock mix bombastic electronics and eccentric histrionics. Like their namesake, they have truly mastered their dark, twisted art. Their recent debut single, Smack Boom, is a sexy electro-clash of twisted synth-pop, blending the dark side of Depeche Mode, the uplifting pop sensibilities of Duran Duran, the hi-octane energy of The Prodigy and the technical genius of Kraftwerk.

The two creative forces behind Hitchcock are Andy Huckvale and Matt Droog, producers of The Enemy, Boy Kill Boy and Beat Union. Andy toured America with his former band, Apartment 26, and created music for TV, including pieces for Microsoft and Nike TV commercials. The Hitchcock live experience is not to be missed - it's rather like a David Lynch movie, with surreal, nightmarish and dreamlike images colliding against the band's meticulously crafted sound.
