Family Photo is five-piece band currently spread out across Boston, rural Ohio, and Salem, Oregon; but all members are linked by their origins in Sacramento. After three years, two EPs, two tours across the country, and countless experiments in genre-defying musical explorations, the band has finally arrived at its first full length album. All We Ever Do is the product of the band's relentless efforts over the years to innovate and invert the world of pop music. Their music is a series of songs at its core, but the ways those songs are colored becomes deeper and more complex with every listen. The matrix of chamber arrangements, the jittering electronics, the dense harmonies and sudden style shifts contribute to the music's searching quality—finding what's familiar and making it strangely new. For this band of wandering virtuosos, All We Ever Do is just the beginning.
