The Neighbourhood


Band: The Neighbourhood

Nickname: The NBHD

Label: Columbia Records, The Revolve Group

Genre: Alternative, Indie, Hip Hop, R&B

Sounds like: A moody and tattooed boy band from the wrong side of the tracks

They hail from: Newbury Park, California

What to expect: Atmospheric and angsty rock with Hip Hop and R&B influences. These songs have the sun drenched quality that comes with living in suburbia amongst palm trees and eternal sunshine, but with enough attitude to turn it all on its head.

Fun Fact: The band describes their genre as “black and white”. Their demo was initially written with rap verses, but the lead singer, Jesse Rutherford, decided he’d rather sing and they were removed.

Standout Tracks: Sweater Weather, Female Robbery

Lyrics “The goosebumps start to raise/ The minute that my left hand meets your waist/ And then I watch your face/ Put my finger on your tongue/ ‘Cause you love the taste.”
