"At the end of 2010, Poly Styrene, the unforgettable front woman and iconic face of the seminal UK punk band X-ray Spex announced her return to the music scene with the album Generation Indigo produced by Youth (The Verve, Killing Joke, TheFireman, and Edwyn Collins). Poly Styrene remains a genuine icon and one of the main influences on the Riot Grrrl scenes with bands like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Gossip, LeTigre and others recognizing her fiery, irrepressible presence. With her great self-styled image, brilliantly sharp lyrics and powerful presence, Poly's indomitable spirit still inspires. The album kicks off with the mighty, power-pop of 'I Luv Ur Sneakers' and maintains the quick pace with first single 'Virtual Boyfriend' before then moving into dubstep territories on the title track 'Generation Indigo'. The album takes in everything from neo-X-ray Spex punk rock on 'Thrash City' and 'L.U.V' to the Trojan-reggae infused grooves of 'No Rockefeller', 'Code Pink Dub' and 'Colour Blind' whilst stand out songs, 'Thrash City' and 'White Gold' attest to the power of Poly's soaring vocals. Poly showcases humorous musings on pop culture, the internet and fashion whilst also tackling heavier subject matter (war and racism) with her politically aware and intelligent lyrics."
