The Neighbourhood, finally released new music, after a two year span of silence. The band members have been very active on their social media accounts, but gave no hints of fresh music, until about two months before the release. Fans went crazy when they announced their “Hard” EP. Only five songs on the album and they left fans more than satisfied.

The production starts off with a song called “Roll Call”. A super chill and super gloomy intro to the EP. The fabrication of the song creates a real lazy sunday vibe. It follows with “You Get Me So High” and “Noise”. This half of the EP has a perfect energy for the arrival of fall. Lead singer, Rutherford, sings about his insecurities and refusing to be anything other than what he aspires to be. The last two, “24\7” and “Sadderdaze”, are a bit more positive. Classic love and breakup songs. All of the songs on the EP have an over echoing construction. With this new production, it’s clear that they were more experimental with their sound and it’s become obvious that the band is moving into a new era. Before, they had a very steady sound, but refused to conform to one genre. Now, their new music sounds like The Neighbourhood from another dimension is introducing their music to the world. As you listen to it in full, it feels like you’re in a daze.

Listen to The Neighbourhood’s “Hard” EP now on Spotify or Apple Music.
