Family of the Year: “St. Croix”

This is a mooning moment for ocean thought and your best neck work.  The Silverlake, California group Family of the Year, newly condensed, paint a swirling/flowing Summerscape on their brand track, “St. Croix”.  The song, named after our “unincorporated territory” in the Caribbean, is a fantastic frolicker, guaranteed to keep your own personal vocal talents in business for a while.  I’ve taken the liberty of drafting the harmony I’ve been larking:

 

Falsetto

Baritone

Doo bee doo bee doo bee bdoo, doo bee doo be doo bee bdoo.


You bring the ocean, I bring the motion to get a nickel of potion/ dancing all night in slow motion.

*Hand Clap Plethora*

Doo bee doo bee doo bee bdoo, doo bee doo be doo bee bdoo.
Wooaaaaaoooaaaaooaaaaooaa
ahwhaooooaaaaooooaaoo
(repeat x3)

Doo bee doo bee doo bee bdoo, doo bee doo be doo bee bdoo.


You bring the ocean, I bring the motion to get a nickel of potion/ dancing all night in slow motion.

*Hand Clap Plethora*

Doo bee doo bee doo bee bdoo, doo bee doo be doo bee bdoo.
Wooaaaaaoooaaaaooaaaaooaa
ahwhaooooaaaaooooaaoo
(repeat x3)

 

The lyrics could be all wrong on that one.  The serious, tie-donning, pull-up-your-pants-young-man music critic in me would chop the terrible bongo intro/expo well-off due to the buzz killing nature they can have on the candy center, but the wild limb flinging nature of the majority of the rest makes me simply forget about it on my race to press play again.  And, if you hook this song on repeat, the percussive instrument does tie things together nicely.  Let “St. Croix” flutter and float right there over the surface of your brain and you’ll feel like you’re doing the very same.

St. Croix by Family of the Year

“St. Croix” is the first single off of the St. Croix EP, due out September 27th.  FOTY plan to release their follow-up full-length in the first few months of 2012.  Until that far away then, visit some of their past work.
