It’s been rather impressive to watch how quickly Newbury Park, CA shadow rockers The Neighbourhood have managed to evolve from relative unknowns into 2012’s newest buzz band in just over three months. Thanks to the mass appeal and strength of singles like “Female Robbery” and the infectiously catchy “Sweater Weather”, the group is riding a serious wave of momentum that has carried them up to today and the release of their debut EP. At a concise five songs, I’m Sorry… more fully demonstrates the band’s ability to interlace thick, brooding instrumental work with witty and poignant lyrics about love, loss and the emotions that follow.
Based on the high quality of this debut, it’s safe to say that The Neighbourhood are definitely a band to keep and ear on throughout the rest of this year and beyond. Feel free to stream all five tracks below and then head to the group’s website to download the entire EP in exchange for an email address.
