Generationals – “Charlemagne” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
I’ve never been to New Orleans, but I’ve only heard good things, and Generationals’ new video for “Charlemagne” — a track off the duo’s most recent album, Alix — only makes me want to visit more. The band highlights the abundant culture of their hometown by showing off some quick shots of the local characters you might find there, which is all tied together with a dance choreographed by Brazilian dancer Diego De Lima. The video is shot in a breezy, slo-mo style that matches the track’s laid back attitude. “New Orleans itself is so colourful, vibrant and full of character, we wanted reflect that in the video- it’s like no where else in the world,” video director Erin Barry said in a press release.
