‘Soft Will’, the third album from Chicago band Smith Westerns (Cullen Omori, Max Kakacek and Cameron Omori), is released on June 24th on Mom+Pop. Watch the splendid video for lead track ‘Varsity’, directed by Alan Del Rio Ortiz, a beautiful, dreamlike vision of young people in love.
Ortiz explains: “I wanted to make a non narrative video clip about young love without showing the usual conventions of going on dates or hanging out at the mall. We studied this couple as they would study themselves and each other in their dreams, and used abstractly sexual imagery to give it a hallucinogenic and hazy atmosphere”.Smith Westerns – “Soft Will”
