The Neighbourhood – Honest

Music execs brought in The Neighbourhood to contribute to the soundtrack to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 along with Pharrell, Kendrick Lamar, Alicia Keys and Hans Zimmer.

While The Neighbourhood won’t ever be confused with Abel Tesfaye, they did have the blog world on lock this past month with a mix of ambiguity and an interesting sound.
