Smith Westerns - "Idol"

smith westerns soft will

Just in time for summer comes this second single from Smith Westerns' upcoming Sound of Summer '13 LP Soft Will, "Idol." Cullen Omori's moody lyrics about an idealized friend ("I wish I could see your dark side") perfectly compliment his band's dreamy, shimmery, ethereal soundscape - over the course of three records, they've absolutely perfected a kind of nostalgic guitar pop that sounds on the verge of dissolving like old film. "Idol" is special because it also sounds substantial, crafted of indelible memories. Check it out - Soft Will is out June 25.
