Listen to ‘Varsity’, the new track from Smith Western.


The leap that Chicago’s Smith Westerns made from their eponymous, trashcan glam debut album to 2011’s ‘Dye It Blonde’ was so startling we featured the band on the cover of Loud And Quiet 27. Needless to say, we’re keen on hearing what the band come up with next, and here’s a hint in ‘Varsity’ – the first track to come from new album ‘Soft Will’, coming 11 June 2013. The melody sounds a bit like ‘Up The Junction’.
