Just in case you've been wondering who does that song on KNRK that's like, "It's too co-o-o-o-old for you here, so let me ho-o-o-o-o-old both your hands in the holes of my sweater," they're called the Neighbourhood, and they show promise. Their bittersweet, hollowed-out-log sound pairs perfectly with rain and pale skin. Formed in California two years ago, the Neighbourhood's first album I Love You has hit the ground running with just the right amounts of poppy riffs and distorted effects for angsty folks to jump on board. Though that radio hit, "Sweater Weather," is probably the best song on the album, the time is ripe to see them before they get too big for their sweaters. ROSE FINN
