Smith Westerns’ third LP Soft Will is out now, and the boys are getting a full dose of ennui in their new video for Idol, shared today via Noisey. A spoonful of cake, babes braiding their locks, and iPhone photo-ops abound, but the boys are zoned-out in their folding chairs pining away for their muse.
 
Beer and cigarettes aren’t the fix Cullen Omori is itching for: He’s just longing for his elusive dream gal in this wispy piece of bereavement rock. Idol isn’t bitter, just lovesick (but probably not as sick as everyone at his loft party is going to be by the end of the night). Watch the video for the effervescent track and check out Smith Westerns’ tour dates, below.
