Philadelphia punk trio Beach Slang make impressively dynamic punk, at turns explosive or reflective.

James Alex (vocals, guitar), Ed McNulty (bass), and Ruben Gallego (guitar) play songs about finding your place or making your way forward on their second full-length album, A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings, released Sept. 23 via Polyvinyl Records. Beach Slang are touring to promote the record, and they stop at the Black Cat on Tuesday, Oct. 11.

By Beach Slang’s account, “teenage feelings” consist a lot of looking out for yourself but they also involve a heck of a lot of energy. The new song “Atom Bomb” for example is a wonderful two-minute rock-n-roll celebration of feeling larger than life.

Listen to “Atom Bomb” by Beach Slang on Soundcloud:

“We need endorphin-heavy, heart-on-sleeve, major-chord, grin-inducing punk rock right now. I mean we need it. There’s a goddamn duty of care: punk has to hold people to account and spit against authority, but sometimes you need to smile like an idiot and let go,” Noisey said of Beach Slang.

The punk gents of Beach Slang are touring with the punk ladies of Bleached on a double bill at the Black Cat. (Revisit our review of Bleached from their show at DC9 in April.) California rockers Hunny open the show.

Tickets are available online.
