The Biography so far:

Beach Slang are a band who have garnered a lot of attention considering that they've only released two 7"s: 2014's Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street and its companion Who Would Ever Want Something So Broken?

Refreshingly this Philadelphia based act have built their hype the old­ fashioned way, without any gimmicks or marketing teams, which makes sense when you consider that frontman and writer James Alex cut his teeth in the Pennsylvania pop­-punk act Weston while drummer JP Flexner and bassist Ed McNulty also play in buzzed about projects such as Ex­Friends and Crybaby.

However there's something indefinable about Beach Slang's music that evokes the spirit of punk and juxtaposes it into something that's as brutally honest as it is infectiously catchy.

That feeling of youth and vulnerability also lie at the core of Beach Slang's music, which is part punk, part pop and all catharsis. It references the ghosts of The Replacements but keeps one foot firmly rooted in the present. It's fun and it's serious. It's sad but it isn't. It's Beach Slang. Enjoy it and look out for the band's debut full-­length later this year because they're still just getting started.

Having very close ties to the band Weston, I am a bit biased. I consider myself an actual friend to many of the members throughout the years. I have roadied for them, driven their van, sold their merch, put out records, wrote about them in FOE zine etc... Smilin Jim (weston) continues where he left off with weston in Beach Slang and that earns a pre-order in my book.

Bix and Smilin Jim
Bix was on the road with Braid as a roadie. 
Beach Slang was playing a show with Braid, reuniting the two Lehigh Valley legends in Nashville.
