More Info:

Reader as Detective, the latest full-length album from New Orleans natives Generationals, finds the band building on what they've been doing since the beginning - crafting undeniable, consistent pop hooks that feel both familiar and radically new all at once. After reconnecting with producer and longtime collaborator Dan Black, Grant Widmer and Ted Joyner found themselves centering on elements of surrealism, absurdism and real-world tangibility while maintaining the level of quality their fans have come to expect from the band over the years. Tracks like "I Turned My Back on the Written Word" and "Breaking Your Silence" showcases the band's superior use of melody, while also highlighting the duo's progressive talents as songwriters. Reader as Detective sees the band taking the familiar pop landscape and injecting a new sense of wonder and uncertainty into each song.
