Generationals Share “Waking Moment”
Generationals have shared “Waking Moment” a single off their upcoming album Heatherhead, out June 2 on Polyvinyl. After thirteen years of creating music, the band has made the record they have been pursuing from the start. The album and singles art depict photos of empty theaters taken by Michele Bressan, as part of his series Waiting for the Drama. The band is thrilled to be back on tour again this fall.
Having worked before with legends like Richard Swift, the New Orleans-born duo this time teamed up Nick Krill (The War on Drugs, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Spinto Band), and welcomed in collaborators including Small Black, Seth Kaufman (Floating Action) and Jonny Campos (Lost Bayou Ramblers) among others – even a wrong number voicemail, sampled on “Strangers.”
“The song is kind of a message you’d send to an old friend you’ve fallen out with. If enough time had passed and you suddenly had the courage to say all the things you’d always wished you could. I’ve always loved the urgency of the rhythm section of this song. Like the whole song stays in this suspended moment of anticipation.There’s bitterness in there but also maybe a carpe diem energy.”
– Ted Joyner
“I love how the chorus lyrics hit that great double whammy of feeling very personal to the singer, but also very relatable to the person listening.” – Producer Nick Krill (The War on Drugs, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah).
