The Neighbourhood is one of the best examples of rock meets hip hop, R&B and electronic
elements. The Californian band came about in 2011 and its members are vocalist Jesse James
Rutherford, guitarists Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels, bassist Michael Margott and drummer Brandon Fried. A year after they got together they were already generating a buzz on the alternative music scene thanks to the release of their first EP, I’m Sorry. Singles such as “Sweater Weather” and “Female Robbery” were a streaming success, which got the attention of both the public and the critics. Two EPs later, where they tested their ideas and smoothed some rough edges (luckily for rock music not all of them were smoothed out) they released their first album, I Love You. Their debut album was followed by mixtape #000000 & #FFFFFF, which included the song “icanteven”, featuring French Montana. By then The Neighbourhood had become one of the most interesting bands of the North American indie scene. Their status was confirmed with the arrival of their second album, Wipe Out!, where pop, rock and R&B appear together , as part of a new musical language, The Neighbourhood’s own language. The Neighbourhood’s eponymous album was released in 2018. This album establishes the band as one of the crucial representatives of an alternative pop that skilfully straddles the indie and the more commercial scenes. “Scary Love” is one of the new songs that will excite the crowd on 18th July on the Super Bock Super Rock EDP stage.
