Smith Westerns Release "Varsity" Video, Announce U.S. Tour

Smith Westerns’ upcoming third album, Soft Will, has been pushed back to June 25, and from the song “Varsity,” we once again could be redefining our impression of the band.

Having already produced fuzzed-out garage and pysch-tinged rock, the Smith Westerns are more colorful and sunny than ever on “Varsity,” and the video, washed in hues of blue and red, suits this.

Check out the clip for “Varsity” below, as well as new American tour dates, taking the band across the country to headlining stops and festival appearances.
