Neighbors' lush, layered blend of synth and guitar, coupled with Stitelman's stripped down delivery, channels subtle reminders of '80s UK new wave and '90s synth pop, but never drowns in a sea of obscure influences from another era.
"Noah Stitelman’s world-weary lyrics and deadpan delivery leads you to think he's pretty much over it, whatever 'it' may be, but the backing instrumentation implies otherwise...even Neighbors' slower tracks are alive and full-sounding, with layers crashing and tumbling all over each other like a psychedelic Arcade Fire." - L Magazine
