Philadelphia three-piece band Beach Slang have been hailed as the best band in America by Tim Kasher from Cursive and are about to make their debut in Australia.

Record label Cooking Vinyl Australia have welcomed the Philadelphia three piece to the roster and are thrilled to release Broken Thrills on May 22nd.

Beach Slang Promo imageBroken Thrills compiles onto a single mini album their first two 7″ singles; “Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street” and “Who Would Ever Want Something So Broken?”

The album is part punk, part pop and all catharsis, referencing the ghost of The Replacements but keeping one foot firmly rooted in the present.

Beach Slang have built their hype the old-fashioned way without any gimmicks or marketing teams and the critics have been raving about them:

 “With the excitement built around it, we’re just going to go ahead and say it: Beach Slang is the best new band of the year. And we’re not afraid to call “first” on that”- Noisey

 “Chasing coolness seems to be just about the last thing on Beach Slang’s mind. They’re an earnest bunch, and the things they sing about—outsized romances, youthful abandon, feeling pretty good about feeling pretty bad—deserve the kind of big, heartrending, leave-it-all-out-there drama this surging alterna-pop only amplifies” – Pitchfork

“Their yearning, burning basement anthems find that sacred spot between pop and punk, with singer-guitarist James Alex rasping melodically over cranked amps. The Insta-ready lyrics have certainly helped stoke the buzz” – Stereogum

 Look out for the Beach Slang’s debut full-length album later this year because they’re one to watch.
