Los Angeles-based Family of the Year recently released their St. Croix EP to build hype for their next full-length album, set to be released early next year. The Hooray For Earth mix of title track "St. Croix" is intense and atmospheric, which might not be the vibe one would expect from a track named after a Caribbean island. Keyboardist and vocalist Christina Schroeter tells Rolling Stone why this track is so moody. "We wrote this song when Jamesy (our guitarist) was looking forward to his trip to the Caribbean with some friends. Those friends weren't us, so we wrote about what we thought should happen," she explains. "Let's just say the original lyrics to the chorus weren't quite as appropriate..." The St. Croix EP is already available, but you can download the "St. Croix (Hooray for Earth mix)" for free here.
