Beach Slang – “Spin The Dial” Video

Beach Slang – “Spin The Dial” Video

“Discover yourself with roller skating!” reads a homely sign at the end of Beach Slang’s new sundrunk visual for their A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings single “Spin The Dial.” Despite my oh-too-personal and painful relationship with gravity, Beach Slang’s new video is selling me on the blades. Three badass roller skaters cruise along the California strip with heart-shaped sunglasses, colorful shorts, and bedazzled jackets. Cartwheels, spins, and seamless cruisin’ alongside pals make “discovering yourself” seem like a breeze as lead singer James Alex proclaims romantic notions for a grungy renegade (“I got dust in my lips and a limp in my charm/ But got a halo on my heart”). Watch director Jason Lester’s lo-fi video below.
