NOISEY NEXT: BEACH SLANG
Philly’s Beach Slang caught fire faster than just about any other band last year. With good reason. They’re really, really, really good. Their heart-on-sleeve nostalgia has been likened to The Replacements, Jawbreaker, and even early Goo Goo Dolls. And of course, there’s the familiar sounds of frontman James Alex’s former band, Weston.
With only a pair of four-song EPs, the band managed to catch the attention of fans and critics alike. All of a sudden, they were everywhere, hopping on festivals, headlining shows, and supporting acts like Cursive and Modern Baseball.
While the band prepares their long-awaited debut album, we caught up with them in their rehearsal space for this episode of Noisey Next.
