It's just too short. That's the only complaint you should expect to see on any review of Neighbors. The band has set us all up begging for more.
Now, Now Every Children begin their follow-up to Cars with "Rebuild," a short instrumental opener that sounds somewhat like a stripped down and gentler version of The Postal Service's "Natural Anthem". Seamlessly transitioning into "Giants," Now, Now Every Children set the bar high for not only the EP, but their future. Front and center are Cacie Dalager's chilling vocals over crashing guitar parts as she sings, "You take our homes // But your framework doesn't hold." The guitar and drum parts on "Giants" truly are new steps for Now, Now Every Children as they venture out into a harder sounding world and don't miss a beat.
It quickly becomes clear that Neighbors is filled with solemn sounding melodies and instrumental parts, but that only plays directly into Now, Now Every Children's hands. "Roommates" features some of Brad Hale's best work on the drums as they dominate the track over hanging vocals by Dalager. Hard-hitting drums and near violent guitar work that sound similar to "Giants" is featured before the music dims and the full band chimes out a perfect, yet extremely eerie "La la la la" to close the track.
"Jesus Camp" is perhaps the most memorable on Neighbors as a mood setting synth brings the EP down to its saddest point as it combines with keyboards and Dalager sings, "I have lost my mind since the I found you died." Transitioning smoothly, "Neighbors" is Now, Now Every Children's brightest sounding track as all of the pieces come together for the band. Neighbors comes to an end with a combination of Dalager's best vocal work and a frenzy of Christmas bells— Hale's idea for sure— that only leaves you looking for more tracks to listen to.

Might as well just hit repeat.
