Praise for Beach Slang: “A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings single and song of the day “Punks In A Disco Bar” channels the same exuberant energy found throughout the group’s debut album. Guitar riffs recall the best of 90’s pop-punk and James’ gravely voice emanates enough emotion to fill a stadium.” – KEXP
“Packed with charred guitar riffs, seething feedback and heart-rate-raising drum fills, the song is another of Alex’s unifying anthems. Influenced by the stories of countless fans whom the band (including bassist Ed McNulty and guitarist Ruben Gallego) met during a tumultuous year on the road, the song earnestly touches on the energy and alienation of youth, and on rising above our struggles together.” – NPR Songs We Love
“Punks in a Disco Bar… is fist-pumping rock splendor, all big and wild and free.” – USA Today
“As with everything Beach Slang puts out, the song is a raw, loud, and everything you want in a punk song, but is also still melodic and contains plenty of heart.” – Baeble Music
“‘Punks in a Disco Bar,’ the first track from the record, a typically rousing and clattering track that will probably make your day 20 percent better.” – Noisey
“The song will certainly be instantly recognizable to fans of the band’s previous work, with the same never-caring, heart-punching, loud-things-loving lyrics and thick Minneapolis-style riffing of Beach Slang’s debut LP – if a touch wearier than last time out.” – Spin
“the heart-on-the-sleeve punks have already become the kind of band that fans rush to get tattooed all over their bodies. Well, those fans had better make room for some new ink…” – Consequence of Sound
“This new track seeps with feelings of youth and their accompanying frustration. Very punk guitar drowns the entire two minutes and 41 seconds, and the vocals don’t hold anything back. It’s just what you’d expect from a song called “Punks In A Disco Bar,” and that’s not a bad thing.” WXPN
