NMM SoundBytes: The Slang Asks “Is It Any?”

A bit of a break from the Halloweeny horror and spooks today with our latest New Music Monday track for you to check out. Hailing from DC, where a rich history of punk and post-punk music paints a fantastic musical backdrop, The Slang delivers indie rock no too dissimilar from the like of Jimmy Eat World or Death Cab for Cutie. Their brand of post-punk inspired indie rock demonstrates pop sensibilities and an understanding of their influences. Watch for these guys as they continue to grow, but for now enjoy this music video and check them out at theslang.com. Their new EP, Desperate Times, is available all at Spotify, Amazon, and iTunes, as well.

So, if you need a break from your month of horror films and music for something a bit less creepy, instead of asking “Is It Safe?” ask “Is It Any?”
