Beach Slang - A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings
Beach Slang's second full-length is a crash-and-thunder collection of songs about what it takes to keep yourself going, to make it through the rest of the night - hell, through the rest of your youth - and beyond. Frontman James Alex wrote much of 'A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings' on their first album's support tour, during which he spent a lot of time with the kids who'd picked up the record. "A lot of the songs [on Loud Bash] are the stories of the kids who got turned on to Beach Slang by the first album," says Alex. "They're autobiographical, too, but kind of at a remove - I'm not that young kid anymore, but I used to be. You know how it is; rock and roll is a new crop of 15-year-olds picking up guitars every year and having at it. There was something really cool about documenting someone elses life, but seeing myself in it. I suppose that's why we connect. We're all kind of one big gang."
