The new wave duo of Generationals have been getting people excited for their sounds for over a decade. While we’ve always been fans, their newest single “I Turned My Back on the Written Word” is their strongest track to date. Coming from their upcoming new album Reader As Detective due in July, the song has plenty of snap to not only hold your attention but keep it with you long after it plays.
The multiple vocal clusters that open the song are definitely attention grabbing, though it’s the groovy bass and snappy drums that should grab a hold of your ears. There’s an intriguing way that the song is mixed that it not only makes you want to get up, but it makes you want to find someone to get down with as well. The overall sound offers the band to a wider audience while keeping their core vibe at the same time.
“I Turned My Back on the Written Word” can be streamed on all streaming platforms, it can be purchased digitally from all online music stores and Reader As Detective can be pre-ordered on multiple packages and formats directly from Polyvinyl Records before its July 19 release. Generationals will be on tour beginning August 17 in Austin, TX at Antone’s until October 05 in New Orleans, LA at Tipitina’s. The band’s complete schedule can be found here.
