THE NEIGHBOURHOOD TAKE NYC.
From the moment we heard them, we knew The Neighbourhood were destined for greatness well beyond the California picket fence, and its with unbearable anticipation that we await their debut NYC shows with us next week. Surfing in on a tidal wave of buzz and a freshly-inked record deal with our good friends at Columbia Records, the Newbury Park five-piece hit the Studio at Webster Hall this Tuesday, before taking things across the bridge to Brooklyn at Glasslands on Thursday. Both shows will be supported by their long lost brothers of pop noir brilliance Lovelife, who have made the quite the name for themselves since hitting our shores earlier this summer. Tickets are going fast and both of these shows are likely to be sold out affairs, so get your Webster tickets HERE and your Glasslands tickets HERE before it's too late.
But wait, there's more. The Neighbourhood already had one of our leading song of the year candidates in "Sweater Weather", but now they've got a video of the year contender in their brand new clip for "Female Robbery", the track that started it all last spring. Their heart-of-darkness Lana Del Rey cinematica was always born for the silver screen, and they don't disappoint with the brilliant new Emile Haynie-produced version of "Robbery" and a video that looks and feels like Hitchcock bringing Twin Peaks back to life in the most masterful way. It's got all the makings of a great American tragedy, so bury yourself in the video above and get ready for the takeover when they hit NYC next week.
