Photo Story: Echosmith Closes Out Their "Inside a Dream Tour"
Today, on Friday, March 9th, 2018, The Neighbourhood has finally released their very anticipated junior album. Being an OG fan from the start, I have been awaiting this ever since they slowly started dropping their EP’s in the summer. As the new music began to roll in, I heard a fresher, more electric sound than from their past hits. I could tell that something good was brewing. The bands’ minds were at work still creating an indigenous sound for themselves. But what is more striking is their ability to change their sound without forgetting their Southern Californian roots. This further displays the lengths of their talent and how their music continues to appeal to their audiences.
Listen to the album in all its glory above.
From their older mixtapes, The Neighbourhood has always given raw emotion which gives them dimension. The band has still shaped themselves an edgy, mellow sound that demands attention. Their complexity allows them to play around with different genres to collectively create their own respected voice. Straying away from their early hip-hop influences from their previous mixtape, #000000 & #FFFFFF, The Neighbourhood has still continued to generate and alter a new sound for themselves. Instead, they have used these previous influences for inspiration for their future projects.

If anyone is curious of #000000 & #FFFFFF:
After fully listening to their album, their voice crafts a new age for the band. Something that gives a different vibe than their older sound. There is a shift away from the darkness which begins to shed light. Even from Jesse James Rutherford’s Instagram feed (the lead singer of the band), there is a gradual acceptance from posting mainly black and white pictures ( the band’s signature move) to now also allowing colored.
For even more exciting news, The Neighbourhood has just announced more tour dates. It has been a long time coming but I am able to go see them live, an experience I know I won’t regret.
