Having being brought into the limelight by virtue of their infamous hotel tour, where they played their self-recorded pop opera to the unsuspecting residents of Spain’s vast hotel scene, the hispanogerman duo that is Family Time released their long-awaited debut, The Great Abismo, in late 2019. After their inauguration on the stages of Greater Europe with arrestingly theatrical live performances, the blood-tied pair have again resumed to scratch their particular itches and return to work on a new collection of songs, collated on the forthcoming The Golden Years EP.
Trading the humid backdrop of holiday resorts that illuminated their last work for a snow-stormed makeshift studio-shelter in Berlin, they have composed, performed and produced an album of fin-de-siècle allure, dealing in love, memory and our fraught attempts at grasping time as it sways by. In the form of a Winter morning’s café fever dream, The Golden Years is once again a cinematic experience unparalleled in contemporary music.
A composition of rare dexterity, The Golden Years maps the shifting moods of the caffeinated, sashaying between precise dissections of romance on lead single "New Positions", to the sardonic rant against the rigged game of life that threatens to swallow the compulsive coffee consumer on the freak-country rocker "Butterfly Season."
"Das Risiko", performed in German, is a tense slice of psych-disco that captures the corporal freneticism of a vertiginous caffeine lift. Album closer "Ruby", revives the "Das Risiko" dance, only with the swagger supplanted by uncertainty and imploring questions that echo unanswered as the beat fades out and Family Time seek their next fix.
