Smith Westerns are at it again with “Varsity,” the lead cut off their third LP Soft Will.
Gone is the snot-nosed sneering petulance of their initial releases and in its place is tightly orchestrated indie pop genius. The sparkly synths, airy vocals, and insanely catchy guitar lines make for a serious feel good windows down cruiser. Think Wild Nothing with more grimy hormone-riddled sleaze.
Stream the track below and keep an eye out for Soft Will, which drops on June 11th via Mom+Pop.
