Critical acclaim for ‘The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us’
“(Beach Slang) knock it right out of the park on this winning debut album” – Kerrang! Magazine (4/5)
“(T)he anxious energy of youth set to dynamic arcs of musicianship'”
Upset (4/5)
“This is Alex and Beach Slang’s triumph, but he makes sure it’s big enough for all of us to share.” Pitchfork (8.0)
“Weston missed the boat as the likes of Green Day and Blink 182 blew up and, while that sort of hyper-success might be a bridge too far, Beach Slang play with the kind of heartfelt abandon that you could imagine translating to wider audiences in a similar vein to The Gaslight Anthem or, going back even further, The Goo Goo Dolls. For now, the no-hopers have a voice, but you get the feeling that it won’t be theirs alone for much longer” – Clash Magazine (8/10)
“Beach Slang’s sentiments are a breath of fresh air in a genre increasingly plagued by doe-eyed boy-bands.” – DIY Magazine (4/5)
“Noisey heaven indeed'”– Loud and Quiet (9/10)
“The Things We Do sounds like the product of an alternate reality in which Bruce Springsteen was a teenager in the 2000’s who spent all his time crafting the perfect instant messenger away notifications instead of ruminating on small town America. But Alex and his bandmates pull it off with sheer conviction and force of will; I don’t always know what they mean, but I know that they mean it”
The Line Of Best Fit
“[E]arnest rallying cries for the uncool, for anyone who’s ever felt like they don’t fit in, and for those who eventually found belonging in cramped basement shows surrounded by like-minded oddballs.” – NPR
“No rock album in 2015 is less afraid to be exactly what it is – ten anthems of last-chance power-punk, broad and sincere enough to make Japandroids seem subtle and uncommitted by comparison.” – Spin’s “Album of the Week”
“[O]ne of the year’s best punk albums.” – Billboard
“The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us is a record made for blaring and singing along to, preferably with your close friends on hand. It is an album with a vibrant, thumping heart that, while bruised and battered, keeps beating through it all. This is music made for people who have needed music to keep going. In a mission to bring comfort to the damaged, isolated or misunderstood of this world, a more resounding success could not be imagined.” – The 405 (8.5/10)
“The hope was that Beach Slang would be the next great melodic punk band; with this album, that’s no longer in question.” – Alternative Press (4 1/2 stars)
