THE NEIGHBOURHOOD
THE NEIGHBOURHOOD
"Buzz-band is a term that has been fluttering around the Internet for quite some time now. It’s meaning is pretty straightforward: it is an underground indie band, formerly unknown, that comes out with a single worthy of Internet hype. That is why I disagree with labeling the recent indie Internet phenom, The Neighbourhood, as buzzworthy; they are clearly destined for so much more.

The band is also exceptionally mysterious. It’s a quintet based out of LA, with Rutherford as the frontman. However, I couldn’t tell you who plays what instrument. Their website doesn’t even have any biographical information. The shroud of mystery surrounding them is part of the reason people like them so much, they’re not out there for fame and glory—yet—they’re just producing great tracks, (and all of these tracks are available FREE online…just keep reading). Their mysteriousness also perfectly parallels with the way they blend the genres of rock, R&B, and folk in a way only an indie band can.

Their 5-track EP is available for free download on their website. All the tracks are well worth listening to again and again." --Candor News

ROBERT DeLONG
Given his wildly innovative, inventive, and inimitable approach to indie dance, it wouldn’t be a surprise if singer/songwriter/producer/performer Robert DeLong actually hailed from a different universe. Encoded in his DNA, you’ll find strands of not only electronic, drum & bass, techno, house, moombahton, rock, and pop, but also the hard science fiction of writers such as Neal Stephenson and Greg Egan as well as the gonzo vision of David Lynch. In the span of a few seconds on stage, he’ll jump from orchestrating musical bliss via joystick to belting out a stadium-size hook on the mic.

“I call what I do ‘hyper indie future pop’,” he smiles. “I’m a big proponent of furthering the fusion of technology and music, which goes hand-in-hand with the live show and how I produce.”
THE COLOURIST
THE COLOURIST
The Colourist first stumbled upon one another in an underused warehouse in Orange County, CA, where Adam and Maya discovered the harmonic chemistry that has come to define the band's bright and anthemic signature sound.

Having spent much of 2012 honing their live show with the likes of Grouplove, Electric Guest and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., The Colourist begin 2013 holed up in a small studio in Southern California. It's there that Adam Castilla (vocals, guitar), Maya Tuttle (drums, vocals), Kollin Johannsen (guitar, bass), and Justin Wagner (bass, keys) will commit their pop-fueled, indie-bred rock to tape before embarking on their first national tour.
