Beach Slang frontman James Alex is doing a solo project from his fantastic punk band and will be doing an acoustic EP under the name Quiet Slang. Quiet Slang will be Alex featuring vocals, acoustic guitar, cello and bass. He will release his debut EP, We Were Babies and We Were Dirtbags in October.
Alex says of the project in a press release: "I suppose we're all chasing something that resembles salvation, something that calms our bones. Maybe this is some small slice of that. Maybe it's not. Maybe it's chaos in soft clothes. Maybe it's frightened. Maybe it's fearless. Maybe it's both. Or maybe it's nothing. I don't know, but I think about this: one day I'm going to be dust. And when my soul splits, maybe this will be the thing that sneaks me through the gates. If not, well, those are the breaks."
