Family of the Year - Stupidland

A couple of weeks back we posted the perfect end of summer lullaby from Family of the Year. Now the band has released its debut music video for Stupidland, a song taken from the album Songbook. The sound Family of the Year is road-trip nostalgic, full of wonderful harmonies and classic song structures that have that rare characteristic of being both instantly memorable and long lasting.

The band have self-released their album and you can buy it on a name your own price basis for the digital download, or order a physical copy on CD for $15 (that’s about £9.65 for those in the UK). Go on – treat yourself – it’s nearly Christmas after all - you can order it by clicking on the band link in the paragraph above.

“The video utilizes a stop-motion technique called pixilation where you basically use people (in this case, the members of Family of the Year) to create animation one frame at a time (like claymation with humans),” the director Christopher J Ewing explained to Breaking More Waves earlier. One question we’d love to know the answer to though is why the Welsh flag in the background?
