"Idol" - Smith Westerns [Soundcloud Stream]

Smith Westerns have already given us a few teaser tracks ("Varsity" and "3AM") from their forthcoming album, Soft Will. The highly anticipated follow-up to 2011's Dye It Blonde is set to be released on June 25th, and the Chicago indie rockers have just released yet another teaser track entitled "Idol":

The track is a hazy, slow-paced pop song, certainly perpetuating a melancholia-laced summer vibe. Be sure to take a listen - also, below you can see if the band will be coming to a venue near you on their upcoming tour.

Soft Will is out 6/25; you can pre-order the album on iTunes.
