The Neighbourhood can’t have much to feel #dark about these days. Their debut EP I’m Sorry… has received near universal acclaim, they were snagged by Columbia within seconds of hitting the collective blog consciousness, and their national tour is about to explode worldwide as they head to Australia in 2013. But the California boys must be brooding about something because “Let It Go” brings us a gloomier take of the hip hop street-infused surf rock we fell in love with last spring. The excellent new track gushes with the kind of introspection usually reserved for walking home alone and half-drunk along a one-lane highway with a waning autumnal moon lighting the way. Have a listen below and stay tuned for album updates–a full-length can’t come soon enough.
