Generationals – ‘Breaking Your Silence’

‘Reader As Detective’, the new full-length album from Generationals, marries vintage pop with modern pop production in a way that the duo have proven to have a knack for. Their latest single, ‘Breaking Your Silence’, adeptly blends analogue and digital, its jogging rhythms a fine example of how Generationals enjoy breaking the rules.



The video for ‘Breaking Your Silence’ combines the bright lights of a roving digital billboard with the peaceful countryside, replete with farm animals, dirt roads, and plenty of greenery. We see a broadcast of Generationals performing on the broad side of the digital box truck, which injects a shot of brightness into the landscape. It’s a serene blending of visuals that uses slow pans and movement to lull the viewer into a sense of calm. While chickens, cows, and horses go about their business, the only ones remotely curious in the action in front of them is a pair of curious dogs that chase the truck down the road.
