Biography

Active: 2000s-2010s
Country Of origin: United States of America

Summer festival-ready, Los Angeles-based indie rock outfit Family of the Year employ a heady mix of Beach Boys-inspired male/female harmonies and have a penchant for cleverly arranged, folk-influenced pop confections in the vein of Mates of State, the Head and the Heart, and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. They hit it big in 2014 when their song "Hero" was featured in Boyhood, director Richard Linklater's groundbreaking coming-of-age film.

Formed in 2009 around the talents of Welsh brothers Joseph and Sebastian Keefe, Florida native James Buckey, and Orange County, California denizen Christina Schroeter, the band released its debut EP, Where's the Sun, in September 2009 on its own Washashore imprint, followed by the full-length Our Songbook later that year. The Through the Trees EP arrived in 2010, followed by another EP, St. Croix, in 2011.

In 2012, Family of the Year returned with their sophomore album, Loma Vista, featuring the aforementioned single "Hero," which became an international hit. The following year saw the release of the group's eponymous third album, which delivered another strong set of hook-laden power pop and breezy West Coast folk-rock. Produced by Greg Wells (Adele, Dua Lipa), the group's third studio long-player, Goodbye Sunshine, Hello Nighttime, arrived in May 2018. ~ James Christopher Monger~ Rovi
