Quiet Slang Comes to The Soda Bar on June 29th!

Beach Slang is coming to San Diego on June 29th. However the band will be arriving under a new name, Quiet Slang. 


Quiet Slang is lead singer James Alex’s new project. For fans who want to know the difference between Quiet Slang and Beach Slang, listen to “Dirty Cigarettes” below and compare it to Beach Slang’s Cheap Thrills on a Dead End Street EP. It's the same song but the new version  on Quiet Slang’s new album, Everything Matters But No One Is Listening really shows the contrast of the songs. The songs sound similar but the new acoustic version really puts an emphasis on the lyrics and showcases them. It's always refreshing to hear a new take on a song and have it sound just as good or maybe even better than the original.



Apparently, the idea of Quiet Slang came after a performance of Beach Slang songs when they came on for NPR’s Tiny Desk series. The positive reception from the acoustic performance James Alex put on for Tiny Desk led him to release the first release under the Quiet Slang name with an EP in 2017. Beach Slang was more listening to the great instrumentation of the songs and Quiet Slang is more on an introspective take where the lyrics are what shines more. 


Everything Matters But No One Is Listening is an album loaded with stripped-down versions of previous Beach Slang songs. Although the album is solid, fans were worried this might spell the demise of Beach Slang. Despite many changes to Beach Slang's lineup, James reassured fans that the band has not broken up. Quiet Slang is more of a sibling to the Beach Slang family. 


The title of the album itself, Everything Matters But No One Is Listening, is a a change of pace for listeners of Beach Slang. These more barren and acoustic songs put a spotlight on the original and shed new light on them. Fans new and old should be excited to see this reinvention. If you're interested in more of an intimate set with a drink in hand, this show will be one for you.
