In their short time as a band, Philadelphia’s Beach Slang have had a great deal of success, leading to the release this week of their full length debut The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us. There is some pedigree here as front man James Alex hails from veteran Pennsylvania punk band Weston, not to say that Beach Slang hasn’t earned their own cred.
Following two EPs in 2014, the band signed with Polyvinyl Records for this intense 27 minute, 10 song body of work, which I recently got to chat with them about for our next SubModern Session. Hear James perform acoustic versions of the album’s first two singles “Bad Art & Weirdo Ideas” and “Noisy Heaven,” and learn more about the band’s background, inspirations, and future plans. Listen to this exclusive performance and interview HERE and feel free to share it on your station’s website or social media. If you’re interested in airing this on your show, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re looking for other suggestions from the album, start with “Throwaways,” “Ride The Wild Haze,” and “Young & Alive.” Hopefully you can catch Beach Slang for a plugged in rock show while they’re on tour this November. See if they’re coming to your town and find out more about them at Beach Slang.com or PolyvinylRecords.com.
