We Were Babies & We Were Dirtbags

EP BIG SCARY MONSTERS A bit of a “band within a band”, this spin-off project from heroic punks Beach Slang showcases the softer side of their leader James Alex. Featuring four acoustic tracks backed by a cello and some keys, the record is a welcome reminder of the power of their frontman’s words, which are all the more formidable in this stripped back setting. Highlights include the touching take on Big Star’s ‘Thirteen’ and the re-imagined version of the anthemic ‘Bad Art & Weirdo Ideas’.
