Formed from the remnants of their previous group, the Baton Rouge, La.-based band The Eames Era, Generationals retains the infectious, hook-filled brand of indie pop that their previous band so elegantly demonstrated. The fact that their songs have been prominently featured on so many films and TV shows speaks volumes about their accessible, catchy nature. Their latest release Heza promises to continue that trend albeit with lead single “Spinoza” demonstrating a more guitar-orientated sound than their recent EP, the electronica-influenced Lucky Numbers.
