The 405

Their sound is assuredly vogue, they're branded flawlessly and the aura of shadows is working like a charm – this is band simply doing everything right.


They stick to the remarkably fully-formed mantra they arrived on the scene chanting. And while they could go darker, grizzlier, or even shinier, ‘I Love You’ achieves what few debuts can, by making one hell of an opening statement.


For all of its slick production value, there’s not a lot of conviction behind the songs themselves, and the lack of depth and variety is grating.


There are hints of greatness at times, but those hints are often masked in the excess of gargantuan production or underdevelopment.

Drowned in Sound

Lyrically inane, musically unoriginal, and carefully produced in a think-tank, they’re a marketing man’s wet dream, but they are unlikely to be yours.

an incredibly indulgent debut pop rock record. the neighbourhood suffers from some dips in quality as far as songwriting goes on some of the weaker tracks here, but the stronger tracks on the album are brooding, gloomy, grey, and most notably, masterfully excecuted.

best tracks: how, everybody's watching me, sweater weather, W.D.Y.W.F.M?, flawless

worst tracks: alleyways, staying up
An album that is carried by one song (Sweater Weather is a certified gem)
Todas as músicas deste álbum autobiográfico são fortes musicalmente e a combinação do indie com o rock gera uma sonoridade única. Os bons vocais e o ritmo do álbum adicionam qualidade a "I Love You", uma grande estreia para o mundo do rock alternativo, em 2013.
Forgetting half of the album after listening to it. Ok sound, doesn't do much with it tho, mix it up a little more please.
