Beach Slang - A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings

Dirt under the nail, every track on this record is Beach Slang at their very best.

Beach Slang - A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings

Beach Slang are a hearts on the sleeve, cards on the table kind of open. There’s no pretence; it’s their truth, the whole truth and nothing but the ugly truth. Across a handful of EPs and debut album ‘The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us’, the Philadelphia punks opened a door to a world of young love and old wounds. ‘A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings’ sees the party continue.

As much as this record isn’t out to break a mould, it does take the backroom success of everything they’ve achieved so far to heart. Self-aware but undaunted, every moment sees the band pushing at the walls, daring to take it bigger, promising to make it more open. See, the band are at their best when they’re writing scuzzy anthems about the dreamers and, dirt under the nail, every track on this record is Beach Slang at their very best. There’s a sanctuary to this group - it’s a house party where everyone’s welcome.
