The band’s second album, Wiped Out! will be released October 30th, 2015. R.I.P 2 My Youth is the final track on the album. It holds the NBHD’s classic genre blend between subtle hip-hop and indie-electro beats combined with Jesse Rutherford’s distinctive vocals.

It definitely remains true to The Neighbourhood’s roots by incorporating a catchy tune with hints of despairing lyrics. This song for sure sets the tone for their sophomore album.

Taking a look at his past two creations, Innerspeaker and Lonerism are flooded with elements of music belonging to the Woodstock decade and bands like Led Zeppelin in the 70s; the highly psychedelic guitar, experimental synth, the muffled drum beats, and echoey vocals. With Currents, the vocals, synth, and bass seem to be the focal point. Three years after Lonerism, Parker has jumped into the 80s pop, but with a twist.
