New York City pop rockers Neighborhood Kids are kicking their feel-good tunes up a notch with the release of Get Dumb, a six-track affair that includes previous singles "What We've Been Missing," "Lockdown" ft. the Dangerous Summer's AJ Perdomo, and their latest, "Heartbreakers."
Neighborhood Kids wasted no time bringing this album to life. They enlisted Zack Odom and Ken Mount (All Time Low) to produce "Heartbreakers," had "Lockdown" mixed by John Naclerio (Brand New), and finally, brought in Rob Freeman (Cobra Starship) to mix the album.
"When we wrote this, I had just recently met the rest of the band. At that point, we just wanted to make an album everyone can blast while they're partying," says lead vocalist Emily Eileen.
And while majority of these songs will play as the perfect soundtrack to your weekend adventures, it also packs some depth, as is evident by "Soliloquy," the last track on the album. "'Soliloquy' was Emily's creation," drummer John Damiano says. "It was a personal song for her that we are glad she allowed on the record, because it showcases her talents as a vocalist."
With its hook-heavy, ear candy sound and dance-ready vibe, Get Dumb holds its own in the world of pop rock and stands as a testament to what the foursome will do when they hit the studio for round two. "It's the tip of the iceberg of what we're capable of," Eileen notes. "And that's why we are heading back into the studio early next year."
