"Youth in Arms" was directed by Dave Bunting from King Killer Studios. The single was taken from Generator Ohm's critically acclaimed 2012 release "Upon the Me Om I". Visit the band here: generatorohm.bandcamp.com
Ernest D'amaso, Michael R.P. Morales and Willie Chen created Generator Ohm in 2010. The Deli NYC describes their sound as "rolling steady through complex arrangements with a fluidity that finds them as committed to the aesthetics of prog-rock as there are to delivering effective rock'n'roll." Their union, facilitated by the genesis of EndAnd, took place in the heart of Brooklyn. Because of the friendly, cooperative, and productive environment of King Killer Studios, where Gen Ohm calls home, their fate was sealed on the terms of the affable and the dreamer. This was a place where musical endeavors could blossom and work could be accomplished. By the summer of 2012, Generator Ohm had produced, with Dan Kramer, a record of their last two musical years.
Generator Ohm's debut album, Upon the Me Om I, is a genre-bending collection of songs written by Ernest D'amaso, or by Willie Chen, or as a collective writing unit. While the songs are different, the tie that binds is the spirit of Rock n Roll that all three members hold to high esteem. Michael, who came late into the band after the songs of Upon the Me Om I were constructed and arranged, brought the fulfilment Ernest and Willie long sought for in the second year of Generator Ohm.
In the Fall of 2011, they approached the project with their eyes and ears on the sounds of Fugazi's Repeater, The Pixies' Surfer Rosa and Come on, Pilgrim, RHCP's 'Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik', Nirvana's 'Bleach' and Jeff Buckley's 'Grace'. In 6 months, a completed LP was produced and ready for the masses. Meanwhile, Generator Ohm played weekly shows all across the lower NYC area. By March of 2012, Generator Ohm had found a place for themselves amongst the ranks of high-calibre musical talents surging out of King Killer Studios, in Gowanus of Brooklyn, NYC. Now, Generator Ohm runs to the future of music with a crew of superb Brooklyn bands such as EndAnd, The mOrgans, The Stink, Kenji Urada, Capita Clip, and TinVulva. It is not the work of one band, but that of a wave of bands that define the value of the era. This is a birth; a singularity that will flower into a significant musical movement of New York.
The future is bright for a band like Generator Ohm. 2012 found influential publications such as The Deli NYC, WHOA Magazine, Followthesignal.com, and Feedback Fury championing the band's at times frantic, yet flowing sound. The band has also played a host of festivals including WilliFest 2012. An EP slated for production later this year is on the wings, and materials for a second LP are already in the bag.
Generator Ohm refers to the heart in every man and woman, and the resistance they must face when accepting the will to live.
