Album artwork for Generation by De Lux

On their 2013 debut album 'Voyage', L.A. duo De Lux introduced their singular sound, a fusion of post-punk, disco, funk and synth wizardry. For their follow-up, De Lux felt compelled to add an element of social commentary to the mix. Inspired by the infamously uncensored lyrics of punk performance artist Karen Finley, as well as the likes of David Byrne, ESG and Can, 'Generation' is a darker album than 'Voyage', heavy on urban anxiety and audaciously candid. Over its eleven songs, De Lux charts the distance between childhood and adulthood, nostalgia and aspiration, and dream and reality, all with unflinching autobiographical detail. The result is entirely unfiltered and fearlessly contemporary. From 'Center of L.U.B', a roller-skate jam that examines one utility company employee's ennui, to the satirical and harrowing 'Oh Man The Future', 'Generation' is never one-note, an album about high highs, low lows and the vast space in between. Stylistically, De Lux has advanced, too, folding styles as varied as krautrock, punk and Italo disco into their template. It may be a step forward for the band, but 'Generation' isn't a departure. This is De Lux going deeper, not farther away, and the result is electrifying.
