    Perhaps, it’s hard for me to imagine The Neighbourhood ever changing. However, in their new album Chip Chrome & The Mono-Tones, I awaited something more from the band that has gifted us with gems such as “Sweater Weather”, “Daddy Issues” and others. Uninspired and bland, it is an album that fails to provide the listener with the same … <a href="https://culture.affinitymagazine.us/reviewing-the-neighbourhoods-chip-chrome-the-mono-tones-is-this-all-the-band-has-got-in-store/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read
