mainstream

Remember when the hot track Sweater Weather came out and I was freaking out about this band called The Neighbourhood!? …No? Because I didn’t have a blog back then? Okay, valid point…but anyone who knows me personally will remember my excitement. Now, almost a year later, they are starting to get some alternative radio play here in Portland. Yes radio! It’s 2012, I have two iPods and an iPhone, and I still tune into the radio, DEAL WITH IT…all the cool people are listening. Anyways, I’m not saying that I’m music’s fortune teller (feel free to call me that if you want…) but I am saying that that isn’t the first time that my music obsessions have become mainstream enough to get radio play *cough* alt-J *cough*. Read that statement as you will…and continue to read Wait And Scene!

Back to talking about the ‘hood…These California natives, with an affinity for British English, are back with this darker, more cinematic release taken from their forthcoming EP Thank You rumored to be released mid-December. Let It Go is the first song we’ve heard from The Neighbourhood since they released their amazing EP I’m Sorry back in August (stream this and cop it)…unless you count their reworking of one of the songs on that EP called Female Robbery. This brand new track got me pumped about all the new stuff we’ll soon hear from them. With their unique, layered sound and epic black and white music videos, I can see what the future holds for these guys and it’s bright as the Cali sun!

P.s. Speaking of Female Robbery, be careful if you’re shopping the Black Friday sales tomorrow; females can be vicious. Happy American Thanksgiving, loyal readers of Wait And Scene! I’m thankful for you!
