Pros: The first couple songs prove that these guys have mass appeal potential.
Cons: Not enough material.

When we call the Neighbourhood a new band, we really mean that "new" part. The Cali group only has two songs out so far, but with "Sweater Weather" and "Female Robbery," they've already made it clear that they aren't just a bunch of amateur trend-followers.

They've got a catchy, summery, crisp indie rock/pop sound, and even with only a couple tracks to their name, they're already on our short list of acts to look out for. When they drop their EP on May 7, we expect it will be in heavy rotation all summer.
