Published Aug 05, 2015Jangled-up Pennsylvania punks Beach Slang recently caught a wave right into the Polyvinyl Records offices and signed a record deal with the long-running indie imprint. First up from the partnership is a new and most appropriately-titled album called The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us. It lands October 30.
The record marks the first full-length outing from the band, and follows their 2014 EP Cheap Thrills on a Dead End Street. The band comprises former Weston member James Alex, as well as various members of acts including Ex-Friends, Nona and Glocca Morra. Their work together as Beach Slang is described in a press release as "music that evokes the spirit of punk and juxtaposes it into something that's as brutally honest as it is infectiously catchy."
""By and large we subscribe to the idea of " 'if it isn't broken, we're not going to fix it'," Alex explained of writing and recording this latest batch of Beach Slang tracks.
The band are already previewing the set with a fuzzed-out track called "Bad Art & Weirdo Ideas," which puts a modern twist on Replacements-style anthems. You'll find it, as well as a full tracklisting for The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us, down below.
