Single Review – The Neighbourhood – Scary Love

The Neighborhood return with new single ‘Scary Love’ ahead of their forthcoming EP ‘To Imagine’ due Jan 12, 2018, via Columbia Records. As the title suggests, maintaining the band’s dark-indie feel this is a track with a slightly spooky atmosphere. Layers of warbled synths and touches of retro drum machines create a gentle eerie feel over Jesse Rutherford’s vocal during the verses. Though the track still manages to create a warm pop, almost Foster The People, feel within its beautiful chorus, as Rutherford’s vocal moves to the forefront: ‘Your love is scaring me, No one has cared for me as much as you do.’ This may not be the most enticing track The Neighbourhood have released to date but perhaps see’s them moving away from their typical sound towards something almost dance-able, if that’s not too scary a concept to imagine.
