Family Of The Year – Loma Vista

Family of the Yera’s album Loma Vista is a stunning debut; it creates a candid, carefree indie world of multi-instrumental bliss. The band’s sound is somewhere between Camera Obscura and Arcade Fire with a freshness about it that is authentic and youthful. Opener The Stairs embodies this perfectly, with an enthusiasm that is almost spiritual. The somewhat tribal and infectious hook of St Croix is memorable, making it one of the highlights not only of this record but of the summer. Then Everytime blows us away with its exquisite, choral grace, marking a record which exudes ecstasy in a beautiful, thoughtful way. Loma Vista is a stunner.
