It usually takes a while for a new band to gain traction. The Neighbourhood did it with two songs. The Cali group released "Sweater Weather" and "Female Robbery," and that was enough to earn them a spot on our list of 20 New Bands To Watch Out For. Part of the reason that the reaction to these tracks was so strong is because there is nothing pretentious about them—no long backstory to sell, no gimmicky image, and no trend-riding. The songs spoke for themselves, and they were so immediately gratifying that it didn't take long to get hooked.

The group just released their debut EP, I'm Sorry..., for free, so give it a listen below and download it from their official site.
