Smith Westerns Burn Through 'Varsity' Live
Chicago rockers soundcheck fun new track

In advance of their new disc Soft Will – which drops June 25th on Mom+Pop – Smith Westerns strapped on their gear earlier this month to soundcheck "Varsity," their lush and lively new track. The shimmering indie-pop number was a late addition to the Chicagoans' third album, which was produced by Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), and this clip was shot at Lincoln Hall in their hometown.

In support of their record release, the band will follow up their recent Coachella performances with a run of summer dates, including a stop at Lollapalooza.
