Following the release of a new single, an album announcement, and new upcoming US tour dates, the beloved New Orleans indie-rock duo Generationals are back today with their latest single “Gatekeeper”. A fusion of classic indie rock sound, charming vocals, and shimmering pop melodies, this latest single is another statement that the band is back and better than ever.

The Generationals new full-length album, Reader As Detective, is proving to be a testament to a band that has clearly been refining their skills over the years. “Gatekeeper” is a shimmering display of indie-pop sound that warms the soul but with clear attention to production that has us especially excited. A catchy percussion kick, a classic indie-rock guitar riff, and a charismatic bassline gets the listener hooked right from the start. From there, a slight distortion helps deliver a warming vintage vocal sound that hits that falsetto at just the right moment to make “Gatekeeper” prime to being this summer’s true indie-pop gem.

The indie-rock vocals never overpower that shimmering and pulsating pop melody and it’s that kind of mindfulness that only comes from seasoned musicians who truly been refining their sound. The Generationals this is their latest release since 2009 release ‘Con Law’ and  “Gatekeeper” dances beautifully between catchy synth work, animated guitar riff breaks and a summery indie-pop beat that has us thrilled for this new full-length album and upcoming tour.
