A review of the Beach Slang song “Punks in a Disco Bar.”

 

Philly punk rock outfit Beach Slang set out to release a brand new single on Polyvinyl records, titled "Punks in a Disco Bar."

 

These guys didn't re-invent the wheel, but they certainly know how to make it spin: the song is upbeat and energetic, bridging the gaps between the grit of garage with hints of 80s hardcore and the melodies of emo (think Jawbreaker, not Fall Out Boy). The result is a balanced sound that feels gritty and refreshingly back-to-basic, yet nurturing the band's melodic side. "Punks In A Disco Bar" remains direct, irreverent and fun, just like any great no-frills rock and roll anthem. The single certainly managed to capture the personality and sound of the band, echoing the work of groups the likes of The Gaslight Anthem, The Black Lips, Cloud Nothings or Fucked Up, just to mention but a few.

 

Sometimes, you don’t need to be experimental to be innovative: looking back to the roots of great alternative music can be the perfect way to move forward, and Beach Slang found their path by embracing a retro sound that still feels contemporary and fresh.
