Album The Things We Do to Find People Who Feel Like Us. Too Late to Die Young Lyrics. Too young to die Too late to die young I try to fight But get high and give up I ain't ever felt loved I ain't ever felt loved. The punks are wired And these records feel tough It's loud and wild But I swear it feels soft Yeah, it's always enough It's always been enough. There's honesty In these neon lights We're animals Drunk and alive I swear, right now I'm alright. Debuted live in early 2015, the fifth track from the group’s debut album The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us marks a departure from the guitar-fueled, soaring punk that embodies the first four songs on the album.
Beach Slang singer-guitarist James Alex hollers on his band’s excellent debut. In fact, this hard-luck kid is in his early forties. But that only makes his commitment to blustery, big-hearted punk-rock catharsis that much more heartening. It makes for an album that’ll definitely have a Calgon, take me away vibe for aging refugees of the 120 Minutes years. Alex, who did time in Nineties emo band Weston, never pushes his chainsmoker’s croak beyond adorable reenactments of well-worn punk rock anti-heroism ( The night is alive/It’s loud and I’m drunk, he sings on Noisy Heaven ). But there’s something refreshing about a bastard of old who doesn’t try to slow down his band’s headlong thwack with stubble-stroking musing on midlife malaise or clunky lit-seminar over-trying. For these guys, noise will always be enough.
People always ask why Beach Slang took off so quickly. With nothing but a pair of EPs under their belt, the scrappy Philadelphia three-piece was able to get themselves booked on festivals and tours alongside bands like Cursive, Knapsack, Modern Baseball, and The Hotelier, not to mention a label deal with indie stalwart Polyvinyl Records. But it’s not hard to crack the code of the Slang’s appeal. There is a timeless universality behind Beach Slang’s lyrics, one that celebrates the idea of being young and carefree (regardless of how old you actually are).
The Things We Do sounds like the product of an alternate reality in which Bruce Springsteen was a teenager in the 2000’s who spent all his time crafting the perfect instant messenger away notifications instead of ruminating on small town America. But Alex and his bandmates pull it off with sheer conviction and force of will. The album does have one flaw of sounding a bit too samey, but with a short run time this album does not overstay it's visit. Lush and loud, Beach Slang's album "The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us" is a fun ride. Fav Tracks: Throwaways, Noisy Heaven, Dirty Lights Least Fav Tracks: Bad Art & Weirdo Idea. xpand.
Beach Slang have managed to find a way to do both at once. We’re running loose in the streets, soaked on the outside, rotting on the inside. Our ears are ringing, our bodies are decaying. One of the best tracks on The Things We D. s Too Late to Die Young. No matter how loud you turn up your amps, no matter how much you rock, bro, odds are that your best, or at least most relatable, stuff is gonna come from a slower, sadder place. Just ask Jawbreaker (or, uh, Def Leppard). Live, Beach Slang reminded me of Jawbreaker
Full of songs hanging their hooks out on massive guitar lines, this terrific debut album sounds like a forgotten underground classic from 1989. That he succeeds is down to the quality of the songs: Beach Slang’s debut album sounds like a forgotten underground classic from 1989 or 1990, every song hanging its hooks out on massive guitar lines. It’s an indie record, yet it sounds huge – and not in an overbearing way. Too Late to Die Young strays a little into Gaslight Anthem territory, with Alex complaining about how he ain’t never felt love and romanticising the punks, but the change of pace is necessary on an album whose principal interest is in pinning the listener to the wall.
Beach Slang sound less interested in ripping that pain open and exposing its insides than they are in shouting over it, and The Things We Do can start to sound like an exercise in emotional extremes. Too fucked up to love/ Too soft to hate, Alex sings on Bad Art and Weirdo Ideas. He’s always running into excesses, too much to fit in and too much to stand out, too much noise and sex and beer all at once, and yet none of it is ever enough. All they have is their yearning and a set of dials cranked all the way up. Even if they can never be loud enough, even if The Things We Do bleeds into itself in a mess of punk rock existentialism, at least Beach Slang’s wide-eyed screams are a treat to sing along to. Essential Tracks: Ride the Wild Haze, Young and Alive.
The feelings of youth and vulnerability 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. Featured in:Cassettes. More from Beach Slang.
