Dysfunctional relationships are a vicious cycle. Fight, then makeup sex. More fighting, more makeup sex. One minute you’re drunkenly screaming at each other in a parking lot about god knows what, the next you’re tearing at each other’s clothes against a dumpster behind the movie theater. Or you’re making your friends feel uncomfortable with your arguments only to be rushing off to get matching tattoos later in the night. That’s the theme behind Beach Slang’s new video for “Atom Bomb.”

Things get particularly violent between the couple in “Atom Bomb,” the fastest rager from A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings, Beach Slang’s prompt follow-up to last year’s cult-sparking debut, The Things We Do to Find People Who Feel Like Us. The two lovers rapidly flash between smashing vases and sloppy hookups, and it's all shot in Beach Slang’s signature vintage 8mm style, an appropriate visual companion to their last video for “Punks in a Disco Bar.”

A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings is out from Polyvinyl Records on September 23, less than a year after the release of The Things We Do. Jeez louise, that’s a fast turnaround from the Philly band. They’re also on tour for most of the rest of this year. Catch 'em in your town. Dates below.
