“…a compendium of sparky, falsetto and synth-driven indie-pop. Like MGMT before they fell down a psych-K-hole…” –Noisey

2014 saw Generationals release their sunny fourth studio album Alix and cover the better part of North America playing sold out shows supporting it. Released last fall, the record comprises the band’s signature blend of subtly sexy time-warp senselessness, successfully pushed and challenged by producer Richard Swift (The Black Keys, The Shins, Foxygen).
In keeping with the distinct spirit of Alix, built from rhythmic layers, RZA beats and bright, poppy vocals, Generationals previously released their mini-film take on Alix track “Gold Silver Diamond,” then shared the electric atmosphere they bring on the road with the live video for “Would You Want Me,” recorded in their hometown of New Orleans.
To kick off the new year in style, they now unleash the prismatic video companion to“Reviver,” where the band stars as motocross racers who fly through palm trees in perfect harmony with the track’s jubilant synths.

Comprised of band members and friends since high school Ted Joyner and Grant Widmer, 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. Determined to leave no city untouched by their live energy, they kick off another national tour next week, including dates in Chicago, Nashville, San Diego, Austin and stopping by festivals including Bahidora Festival in Mexico City and Savannah Stopover Festival.
