They say you can’t decide whether or not you’ll enjoy a book until you have read the first twenty pages. But I reckon that as regards music, I can make up my mind within the first twenty seconds … sometimes less!
And this track, from New Orleans duo, GENERATIONALS is one of them. Forget the video’s imagery for a moment, and feel the vibe from the bubbling synth mix with the hand-claps and the instant hook of the vocals. Time it – twenty seconds, that’s all. If you’re not sold on this track by then I’ll give you your money back. (Well, maybe not – but I am sure you’ll not switch off.)
Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer met as freshmen at High School in New Orleans, thereafter attending college at Baton Rouge where they formed The Eames Era with three classmates. When the band dissolved four years later in 2007, Ted and Grant then started writing songs as GENERATIONALS.
Now, with the experience of a couple of EP and album releases behind them, GENERATIONALS are ready to release their new long-player, ‘Heza,’ through Polyvinyl Records on 8th April. The following video for ‘Put A Light On,’ is lifted from the album.
