about

'Softly / Grace’ marks the first studio recording by Neighbours Burning Neighbours, who previously released two independent live sessions (of ‘Hesitate’ and ‘Lunar Hair Care’).

First single 'Grace' offers an abundance of tension-and-release strides, hoodwinks and plucky takeoffs… all compressed into a modest 3 minutes and 12 seconds.

Rotterdam-based quartet Neighbours Burning Neighbours is unfazed by chaos. In fact, the band’s music could be considered something of a safe space for the more chaotic skirmishes and impulses; a formidable, malformed brand of noise-pop that pierces through the void, achieving joyous harmony within even the starkest of discord.

This all ties into the name: it derives from a passage in coroner Caitlin Doughty’s book ‘From Here to Eternity,’ which explores how different cultures care for the dead. New single ‘Grace’ is an exemplar to Neighbours Burning Neighbours’ winsome chemistry and composure, each musician leaning into the song with maximum exuberance. The guitarist/vocal tandem of Alicia Breton Ferrer (who also plays in The Sweet Release Of Death) and Daanie van den IJssel go tête-à-tête with the glee of a varsity cheerleading squad, incisively building up the band’s collective swagger.

Neighbours Burning Neighbours’ infectious and combustible dynamic – especially as a live unit – is something they immediately hung their hat on in the formative stages. Live sessions of ‘Lunar Hair Care’ and ‘Hesitate’ (debuting on Gigwise and Front respectively) garnered attention on a very organic level.

Track Name: Grace
Great for a while
Tell me I'm dead all the years
'Till I am great for a while
I told you wait all the years
Both out of style
Grace so lucky I am
Grace so lucky I am
Grace so lucky I am

Maybe it is something you've heard
Live the dream win it be sure
Be a fast horse
Don't look away for a while
Tell me I'm grace so lucky I am
Grace so lucky I am
Grace so lucky I am

Oh I saw you before
