The Neighbourhood could be about to take over the world, or at least the charts. The L.A. band is a pop group masquerading as modern rockers, with enough electronica and R&B highlights to cover those bases as well. So far so good, as the quintet has ridden a high-profile opening slot on Imagine Dragons’ 2013 summer tour and the success of singles “Afraid” and “Sweather Weather” (the latter a Billboard Modern Rock No. 1) into this large-theater headlining tour. Overall the Neighborhood’s songs (from their one and only album, I Love You) are pleasant and haunting, soothing enough to make good background music but hummable enough to make good singalongs, too. But their real secret weapon is the soulful, puppy-dog voice of front man Jesse Rutherford, who’s not above a little pouting if it suits his purposes. He is a walking swoon waiting to happen.
