New Smith Westerns – All Die Young

Those young rapscallions, the Smith Westerns, are back with another fun single before their second album, Dye It Blonde, is officially released on January 18th.

I loved their first album, although I’ll have to admit it was a bit too lo-fi for me. That is to say, it was damn good but the audio quality made it too hard to hear a damn thing. Fortunately, they’ve gotten some better recording equipment and with the cleaned up sound you can now actually hear how fun their sound really is.

Like a dreamier and significantly more girl obsessed R-rated version of the Beach Boys, these indie rockers from Chicago capture fun in the sun while chasing skirts perfectly.

“All Die Young” is a bit more morbid and mellow than their previous single “Weekend,” but still catchy as hell. Judging from these two tracks, the Smith Westerns have really come a long way in fully developing their sound and Dye it Blonde promises to be an amazing album.

Stream their new single below, and also check out their recently released video to “Weekend.”
