"Sweater Weather" (CD Single)
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that "Sweater Weather" is a sweet but somewhat suggestive song about love. Although the lyrics aren't explicit, they do get physical and poetically describe a couple having sex. One of the music videos for the song also shows some smoking and drinking. But with no iffy language, violence, or more explicit sexy stuff, the song is OK for older tweens and up.
What's the story?
SWEATER WEATHER is the first single from the rock group the Neighbourhood's (or the NBHD) debut album I Love You. The moody single describes two people whose \"hearts adore / Everyone the other beats hardest for.\" The band created two retro-looking music videos for the song, one showing a couple on a beach and the other showing the band driving around a beach town.
Is it any good?
The Neighbourhood has managed to do something that not many bands can do: craft a lovely love song that isn't cheesy and feels fresh. The moody feel and hip-hop beats pull you along, and the poetic language is compelling. This is a track you'll want to play on repeat.
