The name might not ring a bell, but you probably have heard Family of the Year’s music before. Richard Linklater prominently used the band’s 2012 campfire anthem “Hero” when promoting last year’s Boyhood. Their contagious good vibes extend beyond “Hero,” though. Later this summer, Family of the Year will release their third album, and EW is proud to exclusively premiere “Make You Mine.” With a barbeque-ready chorus of “Summertime, I’m gonna make you mine,” the track electrifies the Family of the Year sound many listeners know by injecting some Grouplove-style carefree cheer.
Listen to “Make You Mine.”
