Beach Slang frontman James Alex is releasing another EP of reworked Beach Slang songs under the moniker, Quiet Slang. Due out next month Jones has shared a single called “Hot Tramps,” his recent contribution to the Amazon Axoustics playlist. In a statement to Stereogum, Jone said “I wrote this song on the same day David Bowie died. I don’t know. I felt like making something was the best way to punch through it, to figure it out . I suppose, some of it’s about Bowie. Most of it’s about a girl. All of it’s about patching up the cracks. So, that’s the deal, you know? A few chords, some clumsy words and a title you swiped from a hero — it doesn’t fix it all, but it numbs the sting. Maybe that’s enough.” Check it out below:
