Today for Artist Spotlight, we jet on over to the City by the Bay known as San Francisco where we come across the harmonic sounds of The Family Crest! The collective consists of Liam McCormick, John Seeterlin, Charlie Giesige, Laura Bergmann, George Mousa Samaan, Owen Sutter, and Charly Akert. The band's sound is an cross between Arcade FIre and Broken Social Scene with upbeat indie rock rhythms and gorgeous, harmonic instrumentation that really signifies the deep musical bond between all the members and their affinity for crafting serene music that really captures the attention of a musical audience that has a veracious appetite for specific genres of music. I thoroughly enjoyed what these guys had to offer, and really appreciated the musical direction that they took which emphasized high energy melodies and lyrics brimming with positivity that will keep them in the minds and hearts of everyone who comes into contact with them. An amazing group that you'll be hearing more of for some time to come. Some recommended songs for you to check out include "The World" and "Make Me A Boat".
