HitchcockGoHome!: You Can Not Be Serious!...

French quintet HitchcockGoHome! create superb shoegaze music with the acoustic gothic alt.country gloss of 16 Horsepower and Werner Ghost Truck. With a leading role for the banjo on their sophomore album You Can Not Be Serious!... they build their tunes adding one color at the time. She's drawing is a song that takes the listener by the hand, showing him rarely explored back roads of indie music. The lyrics have a ring of detachment to them. You can look, but you can not touch. Like they sing in Odd:

we look at your odd face
you're not in the right place
we would never know who you are
we would never see where you are
HitchcockGoHome!: You Can Not Be Serious!...

You Can Not Be Serious!... is an album for the inner circle. Audiophiles and headphone freaks will love it.

Martin Leclerc: guitar, vocals, banjo
Sylvain Taboury: guitar, vocals
Fanny de Prémorel: bass guitar, vocals
Guillaume Roche: guitar
Jean-Christophe Lacassagne: drums
