Family Of The Year – “Let’s Be Honest” (Stereogum Premiere)

Six-piece Family Of The Year have played around California for a bit, but they’re about to release their European debut, the Summer Girl EP. The band does include real family members, brothers Joe and Sebastian Keefe, but the band do all live together. “Let’s Be Honest” reflects their L.A. locale and their close quarters. It’s fully of warm, bright harmonies and surfy rhythms (and handclapped breakdowns). “Summer Girl,” one of those wistful, end-of-summer/summer romance songs, is nearly all vocal harmony with a little piano and guitar.
