If you're familiar with any Beach Slang song, you've pretty much already heard A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings. That's kind of the point of Beach Slang. James Alex speaks almost exclusively of being young, loud, and wild to reacquaint listeners with the dormant emotions they once felt were inextricable from formative moments: discovering the Replacements, playing in a high school band, making out on the filthy couch at your first punk rock show. He yells lyrics like, "The radio is loud and wild, but I'm too drunk to spin the dial, one of the more subtle nods to the. Is that lifestyle really sustainable or really any way to truly live? Here’s the first chorus on the album: I hope I never die. Simply believe that James Alex believes it and you might, too.

Moving on: A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings (the title is derived from bandleader James Alex’s description of someone’s heart in Hot Tramps ) has a distinctly rougher edge to it than The Things We Do. If that album constitutes responding to the emotional conflicts of one’s early adulthood by saying Fuck it, cracking another beer, turning the music up louder and trying to stay positive, Teenage Feelings shows significant signs of the impending hangover despite still being packed with gripping melodies and shout-along choruses. Not all of these differences will be immediately apparent, and fans of The Things We Do need not worry-Teenage Feelings is very much a Beach Slang album. Moments like the sharp three- and four-note guitar hooks on Perfect High and Hot Tramps still ring out with as much essential joie de vivre as anything in the band’s catalog.
Coming off a string of acclaimed EPs, Beach Slang’s first album, 2015’s The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us, won remarkably effusive acclaim from a number of critics, and wound up on several best-of-the-year lists. James wrote much of A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings on that album’s support tour, during which he spent a lot of time with the kids who’d picked up the record. A lot of the songs are the stories of the kids who got turned on to Beach Slang by the first album, says Alex
