There are so many songs called “Hero” that the title alone is enough to make you cringe.  However, Family of the Year, the L.A.-based quartet, puts a more honest spin on their “Hero,” with a song about not wanting to live up the expectations that come with being the better man.  (Let me go, I don’t wanna be your hero/ I don’t wanna be a big man, Just wanna fight like everyone else.)  What makes “Hero” such a striking song off of FotY’s sophomore album, Loma Vista, is that it is a soft, acoustic stripped down track stuck in the middle of a rollicking, nostalgic record.  Enjoy.
