Although its over 100 degrees in Los Angeles now, I still don’t mind listening to “Sweater Weather” by The Neighbourhood. Simply a sensual feeling overtakes the song with the soft melodic flow of vocals and low bass. The music video shows the boys chilling, relaxed, and laid back while cruising through California. What better way to spend the day right? The video has a vintage/artsy vibe that is kicked together with a don’t care about it party vibe. Not to sound contradictory or anything…. But the Neighbourhood is definitely a band you should keep your ears peeled open for!
I remember first seeing this band firsthand at the RED Media offices in NYC. They were very interesting and looked very hipster at first sight so I knew I was gonna be hearing some type of indie music. As a big fan of indie music I was very excited to listen to them! It came to my surprise that they are not just like the stereotypical indie band, they actually have much experience with instruments. One of the band members even brought in a huge bass to add to the music and environment while playing! Not only was I impressed, but it also made the performance more enjoyable to listen to and watch!
“We Don’t Need Our Heads” was definitely the song that stuck out to me! Not only are the lyrics captivating and inspirational, but the vocals in it soothe me. It reminds me of some classic rock with a current indie twist.
I am looking forward to hearing more from this great band in the future to come!

If you’re feeling in a bit of a hardcore mood, this song will definitely make you want to rock out! I always feel that rock music is always too hardcore for me, but this song killed it with its slow intro that slowly fades into All That Remains signature beat!
