LA-based indie-folkers Family of the Year recently unveiled their first single, "St. Croix" from their upcoming EP of the same name which is due to drop on September 27th. The song has already been making the rounds in its hometown, topping the "Locals Only" playlist on KROQ and we can see/hear why with it's vibrant 80s-esque riffs and carefree lyrics. This song will definitely be getting added into my weekly rotation. It's definitely a good way to kick off the week, that's for sure!
Following the St Croix EP a proper full length is expected early next year.
The band has confirmed dates in September and October on the west coast sharing the stage with the likes of Viva Brother and Grouplove. You can check out the dates after the jump for more info.
