Philadelphia’s Beach Slang are getting ready to release their sophomore record, A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings, on September 23rd (Polyvinyl Records).
We’ve already enjoyed the song “Punks in a Disco Bar.” Now we have another listen with the song song “Atom Bomb.”
There is a music video for the song too if you’re still jiving on the audio-visual medium. Noisey says the music video takes to an explosive and volatile relationship. “Dysfunctional relationships are a vicious cycle. Fight, then makeup sex. More fighting, more makeup sex. One minute you’re drunkenly screaming at each other in a parking lot about god knows what, the next you’re tearing at each other’s clothes against a dumpster behind the movie theater.”
James Alex sings, “I won’t die, don’t need heaven. Too fucked up to put out.”
Beach Slang is on tour back east then Europe. Nothing out west yet. I missed their show last fall at the Cobalt and it is one of my great rock & roll regrets.
