The Neighbourhood Drops ‘Wiped Out!’

Ventura County Band Releases Sophomore Record

The Neighbourhood’s highly anticipated sophomore album, Wiped Out!, has finally been released. The Ventura County–based five-piece reached enormous popularity after the release of its debut album, I Love You, and the single “Sweater Weather” in 2013. Now two years later, after many rumors of breaking up, the indie band has returned into the spotlight with a second album that closely resembles the first. The new tracks continue to follow that theme of sultry lyrics paired with bouncy beats. The dark melodies and soft-toned vocals could make any listener want to close their eyes and slowly sway their hips. This album is definitely made for fans of Lana Del Rey, The xx, or pre-existing fans of The Neighbourhood. Standout tracks include “Cry baby” and “The Beach.”
