[Listen] Stream Smith Westerns' New Single "Varsity"
Smith Westerns made plans back in November of 2011 to get working on a third album, the follow-up to 2011's excellent Dye It Blonde, and those plans are finally coming to fruition. The band has been hard at work in El Paso, Texas, teaming up with producer Chris Coady to record the LP. As Pitchfork reports, the finished effort is titled Soft Will and features 10 tracks, one of which you can hear today.
The song, titled "Varsity", is the closing track on the album, and sees the band embodying '60s pop sensibilities. Flourishing guitar riffs, soft ballads, and delicate synthesizers surround this lighthearted cut from start to finish. Stream it below.
Soft Will drops on June 11th via Mom+Pop.
