Smith Westerns are a great young band – we knew this much coming out of their breakthrough 2011 album, Dye It Blonde – but we didn’t know they were capable of the John Lennon-inspired melancholy gorgeousness on display here.

“3AM Spiritual” is the opening track to Smith Westerns’ new album, Soft Will, due out June 25th. We’ve already heard the album’s excellent album closer, “Varsity.”

Soft Will:

01. 3am Spiritual
02. Idol
03. Glossed
04. XXIII
05. Fool Proof
06. White Oath
07. Only Natural
08. Best Friend
09. Cheer Up
10. Varsity

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
