Generationals Air “Hard Times for Heatherhead” & “Eutropius (Give Me Lies)”

Generationals Air "Hard Times for Heatherhead" & "Eutropius (Give Me Lies)"

Ahead of the release of their new album ‘Heatherhead‘, New Orleans indie pop-rock duo Generationals have aired two new singles “Hard Times for Heatherhead” & “Eutropius (Give Me Lies)“.

Having worked before with legends like Richard Swift, the 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.” 

Nick Krill shares on the pair of tracks:

“Eutropius” and “Hard Times for Heatherhead” have an interesting relationship to me, and I love that these two songs are being released as a single together. Both songs have a drive and momentum to them, but I love how there is a contrast between the two tunes and that in each song, the energy seems to evoke a different feelings and different settings.

“Eutropius” feels very much like an outward expression and big forward motion. The song feels like the daytime, and the big impactful musical moments in the song remind me of impactful moments in nature. The horn section accents and drum fills remind me of gusts of wind or crashing waves.

On the other hand, “Hard Times for Heatherhead” feels more like an inward reflection. In contrast to “Eutropius,” this song feels like the nighttime, and the city. The sonics make me think of lights reflecting off of wet pavement, and steam coming out of subway vents.

The duo’s sixth studio album will be out on June 2 via Polyvinyl Records. Pre-order it here.
