Family of the Year – St. Croix

November 17, 2011

With the weather taking a brisk turn for the colder, what we could all use right now is some sunny summer pop – the kind that makes you want to lay on the beach and reminisce about the Beach Boys and Annette Funicello. Los Angeles-based Family of the Year has realized what we need and firmly delivered with this video for their latest single, “St. Croix.” A tongue-in-cheek reference to all the beach blanket bingos and bikini beaches of the 50’s and 60’s, it pairs the sun-drenched visuals and bright colors with an immediately catchy song that makes you want to grab a fruity drink,  someone you want to kiss, and lay out on a towel (even if it is dropping below fifty degrees). Family of the Year’s St. Croix EP is out now with a new full-length, Diversity, coming next year. Keep up with them via their Facebook.
