A little reminiscent of The White Lies, yet substitute a little of Harry McVeigh for the likes of Orlando Weeks and you are on the right track towards the sound that Melbourne quartet The Neighbourhood Youth proliferate. After hearing some rave reviews about the lads’ performance supporting The Harpoons’ show at The Toff In Town on Australia day eve, I went digging for their two available tracks. The Neighbourhood Youth seem as if they are not desperately trying to impress anyone, simply just playing the music that appeals to them. Hot tip guys, it’s paying off.
Their track ‘Stone’ has a distinctly airy beginning that builds into a driving collaboration of rousing drums and John Philip’s distinctive vocals. Whilst ‘Home’ is a much more vibrant track that induces all the imagery that a great summer tune should.
You can them catch at:
24th of Feb at the Northcote social supporting I, a Man
1st of March at the Espy supporting Playwrite
4th of March at the Victoria Hotel
as well as their single launch at the Workers Club on March 15th with supports from Private Life and The Red Lights
