• beach slang / quiet slang We Were Babies & We Were Dirtbags (4-track 7", £3.75)

    label: Big Scary Monsters

    Almost since Beach Slang came into being, bandleader James Alex has taken to performing his group's heartfelt anthems as more intimate solo renditions. Appropriately dubbed "Quiet Slang", these alternate reality versions of Beach Slang's music have now simultaneously been stripped down and fleshed out in the studio to include piano and cello. The result is a collection of songs that peal away the layers of reverb and distortion to lay bare their starkly honest and emotional cores. "I suppose weíre all chasing something that resembles salvation, something that calms our bones. Maybe this is some small slice of that. Maybe itís not. Maybe itís chaos in soft clothes. Maybe it's frightened. Maybe it's fearless. Maybe it's both. Or maybe it's nothing. I donít know, but I think about this: one day Iím going to be dust. And when my soul splits, maybe this will be the thing that sneaks me through the gates. If not, well, those are the breaks." ó James Alex [Quiet Slang]. This is an EP from Beach Slang, albeit a quieter, more stripped down version of the band. Tracklisting
