In a little over a month Chicago garage-pop heartthrobs Smith Westerns will release their third LP, Soft Will, via Mom + Pop. But today we were treated to the video for their first single “Varsity” and it finds the band in a typically joyous, laid back mood. There’s even a lava lamp in this clip.
If you’re into tangerines, flowers, or people touching their lips, then you’ll love this video. It’s a dreamy sun-kissed song, truly meant for the summer. We’ll have to wait a little longer to hear “Varsity” in the context of Soft Will, but if you feel like taking an early vacation, then check out the video below.
