BOTW Video: The Neighbourhood – Female Robbery

Introduced yesterday as our current Band of the Week, California’s The Neighbourhood trade in dark, atmospheric post-punk underpinned by crisp drums and disorienting samples. The video for ‘Female Robbery’ – taken from their I’m Sorry EP, which will be reviewed on the site later this week – perfectly complements the murky waters in which they swim musically.

Opening on a brief prayer of gratitude in French, it quickly shifts to something far creepier as a girl tosses and turns in her bed to the sound of sirens and sampled screams. It’s a nightmarish take on domestic bliss gone awry via the kidnapping implied by the song’s title. We won’t spoil things for you but suffice to say, it’s gripping viewing.
