The much buzzed about Philadelphia rockers in Beach Slang have risen to a state of prominence after its pair of 2014 EPs and road warrior initiative drew the group comparisons to The Replacements and appearances at the most grandiose of punk-rock platforms, Riot Fest. But amongst the high-profile praise this outfit has never lost sight of those who support them, going so far as to promote fan-made art pieces and music on social media forums.
On Thursday Beach Slang frontman James Alex pinned a cover of the band’s lauded single “Dirty Cigarettes” on Facebook, an emotional delivery by a Worcester, Massachusetts artist named Nick Abraham, who goes by the stage name Sadcamp.
“Some things fall out of someone and sound so fucking honest,” Alex wrote. “This is one of those. Thank you for this, Nick Abraham. So much more than you know.”
Stream Sadcamp’s rendition of “Dirty Cigarettes” below and stay tuned for more as Beach Slang readies its debut full-length collection The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us, which is due out on Oct. 30th via Polyvinyl…you can also check out the band’s latest single “Young And Alive” down yonder.
