A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings.
Witty, moving and seriously catchy, Robyn Hitchcock is a glorious return for a man who wasn’t really gone in the first place.
Robyn Hitchcock is one of England’s most enduring contemporary singer-songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist, and musician’s musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock’s father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).
Since founding the art-rock band the Soft Boys in 1976, Hitchcock has recorded more than twenty albums and starred in Storefront Hitchcock, a concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.
Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Hitchcock describes his songs as “paintings you can listen to.” His most recent album is self-titled and marks his twenty-first release as a solo artist. The 2017 album was produced by Brendan Benson (the Raconteurs). Hitchcock describes it as an “ecstatic work of negativity with nary a dreary groove.”
