There is a certain radical quality buried in Rick W's sparkling, Bowie-inspired vocals. Though a little hidden at times, The Hitchcocks' frontman possesses just enough cool in his voice to pull off the mostly creepy and sinister shroud circling his well-contemplated vocals. And it's this complex vocal rivalry that carries The Hitchcocks through even the slightly mundane tracks on the band's self-released debut, We Are The Hitchcocks.

The Decatur, Ga. trio may be newly formed, but its members are certainly not beginners. Guitarist and vocalist Rick W, bassist Allison S and drummer Chris S have decades of musical experience combined and the seasoned experience that shines through in The Hitchcocks' composition, with track-by-track diversity and instrumental comprehension. But aside from the technical clarity on We Are The Hitchcocks, there is a sentimental tone that pings its way around the band's respective influence. Back and forth, the band travels from The Velvet Underground to the Talking Heads and then off the wall of Pink Floyd before slamming into David Bowie. And perhaps that's where The Hitchcocks lose some points. Though the band is great and the songs are written with a rare mastery of subtlety and amplitude, there's an absence of individuality.

Nonetheless, We Are The Hitchcocks is a richly inspired album with a textured collection of tunes. Tracks such as Kiss, Walk With Me and Divided show the pop side of The Hitchcocks with upbeat tempos and sing-a-long lyrics while tracks like Con, Fade Away and Beyond display a little more of an edgy darkness in the band's repertoire.
