Two weeks ago, Smith Westerns released "Idol" as a teaser track from their then-unreleased album, Soft Will. Today, the Chicago-based band has given us a lo-fi VHS-themed music video for the track, directed by Sandy Kim. The video's narrative focuses on the sullen-faced trio as they sit around a table. A group of youngsters indulge in general partying and merrymaking while the trio remain contemplatively seated, practically motionless save for the lead vocalist's lip-syncing. This may look familiar for those who have seen the music video for The Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated".

Check it out above, and be sure to purchase Soft Will on iTunes.
