Filed under: Video of the Day Artist: Family of the Year Video: 'St. Croix' Highlight: "Shooting the video was awesome," drummer Sebastian Keefe tells Spinner. "We didn't want to be dramatic or make a video that had to be taken too seriously. We wanted to have fun and create something that would hopefully be entertaining. We wrote this song when Jamesy (our guitarist) was looking forward to his trip to the Caribbean with some friends. Those friends weren't us, so we wrote [...]
The moniker is Cillie, as in "silly," and Barnes, from a family name. But Cillie Barnes is not a new, honey-voiced angel dropped from the heavens — it's just the new musical incarnation of Vanessa Long, co-founder of the L.A. folk-pop outfit Family of the Year. The O.C.-bred songstress departed FOTY last year, deciding after a tour supporting Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros that "this wasn't quite the life I signed up for." Now, she says, "I'm free to work on my own songs, although I couldn't be doing it without the help of some good friends," [...]

Yes, the chorus to Family of The Year 's "St. Croix" features the cringe-inducing lines "You bring the ocean/ I'll bring the motion/ Together we'll make a love potion/...Dancing all night in slow motion" and no, it doesn't deserve an instant trip to the Recycle Bin because of that. Why? Because the track, a tale of a "boy from Florida" who escapes to the Caribbean to "get over it" from the L.A.-based indie-folk act's new EP of the same name, so irresistibly evokes the surf n' sunshine bliss of summer season good times with its happy-go-lucky [...]
Drawing comparisons to the great songwriting teams of the '60s and '70s, Family Of The Year is an L.A. band with style. Biding time until the group's tinyOGRE Entertainment full-length debut in early 2012 is the St. Croix EP, featuring the title track as its first single. "St. Croix" has a light, breezy feel, showing off [...]
While weak in the lyric department, Family of the Year’s “St. Croix” is absolutely hulking in its likeability.

The new video for the track, directed by the Oscar [...]

L.A.'s Family of the Year never seemed comfortable with staying inside the lines that separated the genres of folk, pop and electronica. But within that rebellion in regards to songwriting, hooks have never been a problem for the band whether they came forward with raw, harmony-laden ballads such as "Summer Girl" or explored Euro-disco soundscapes with jams such as "Psyche or Like Scope." However, their charm has recently been filtered leaving only squeaky clean, high spirits for fans to consume on the new EP. It's hard to believe this quartet was the same band who gave us the [...]

The superhyped shout-rock indie band Grouplove headlined at Bimbo’s 365 on Thursday with jangly Los Angeles group Family of the Year opening. It was very much a tale of two bands. While they both slide into the wildly inclusive classification of “indie”, the two bands couldn’t be further apart. Family of the Year Family of the Year galloped through their hour-long set led by Welshman #1 and gangly-as-hell FOTY frontman, Joe “half-unbuttoned” Keefe. Trying to be a rock star Jesus? Possibly. Pulling it off? Actually to some degree, yes. Keefe exuded a [...]
