The Neighbourhood or "THE NBHD" got togehter in Newbury Park, California back in 2011. The band is composed of vocalist Jesse Rutherford, guitarists Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels, bassist Mikey Margott, and drummer Brandon Alexander Fried.
After releasing three EPs, I'm Sorry..., The Love Collection and Thank You, The Neighbourhood released their first full-length album, I Love You., in 2013, on Columbia Records.] The band's second album, Wiped Out!, was released the following year.
The band members chose the British spelling of 'neighbourhood' on the advice of their manager, in order to distinguish themselves from a band already using the American spelling.
Billboard.com reviewed that The Neighbourhood's I Love You, came off like a goth Maroon 5, making soulful alt-rock for the shady SoCal dream world occupied by Lana Del Rey. The band got help from Del Rey producer Emile Haynie, whose absence on this follow-up doesn't kill the noirish vibe. Recorded with I Love You co-producer Justyn Pilbrow and duo 4e, the subtler, less stylized Wiped Out! keeps the palm-trees-at-twilight feel, but the sound is more hazy R&B than rock. Over seagull-squawk guitars in "Cry Baby" and the cold-blooded bump of "Ferrari," singer Jesse Rutherford goes full Weeknd, working through the young-buck anxieties that are his group's lifeblood. The songs are sometimes more moody than memorable, though single "R.I.P. 2 My Youth" is a notable exception: Rutherford cleverly riffs on the classic hip-hop gambit of imagining your own death, channeling The Notorious B.I.G. in a song that sounds like it was written by Miguel for Nick Jonas.
