The Family Crest is genuinely talented. If you love bands like Of Monsters & Men and Arcade Fire, you need to add them to your collection. Their genre? They call themselves “orchestral indie collective”. NoiseTrade labels them “collaborative chamber pop” under “alternative”. Whatever you want to call them, there is no doubt that they are fabulous.  This video is one of my favorites as they perform “As We Move Forward” at The Stern Grove Festival in August 2012.

Find out more about them as a band, how they started in 2008 and have “over 250 extended family members who participate in recordings, live performances, etc”. For more information about tour dates and upcoming shows visit,
