“It looks at life’s ties that bind and searches for ways to chill and not fight every battle.” NPR

“a compendium of sparky, falsetto and synth-driven indie-pop […] Like MGMT before they fell down a psych-K-hole” VICE’s Noisey

“Think of it as an ambient electro soundtrack to the segue from day to night.” – Esquire

In the midst of an already massive North American tour, New Orleans’ Generationals announce the addition of live dates through January and February of next year. Hitting Nashville, San Diego, Austin and many more, the indie-pop wizards continue their quest to leave no city unturned by their impossibly catchy melodies, synth hooks and unassuming talent.

Built up with layers of rhythm, computer noises, RZA beats and poppy vocals, the Generationals’ 4th LP Alix, released this fall, is a good-smelling, subtly sexy blend of time-warp senselessness. In keeping with the distinct spirit of the record, the band previously released their mini-film take on Alix track “Gold Silver Diamond,” and today, to share a sense of the electric atmosphere and life their tunes take on live, they share the live video for “Would You Want Me,” recorded in their hometown of New Orleans.

Comprised of band members and friends since high school Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer and produced by Richard Swift (The Black Keys, The Shins, Foxygen), Generationals fourth studio album Alix, (out now via Polyvinyl Records) gives a tangible sense of the co-captains’ history, revealing itself as perhaps the band’s most confident record yet.
