This week Chicago-based lo-fi rock band Smith Westerns premiered a dreamy new video for “Varsity,” the first single off their upcoming album, Soft Will. The album, out June 25th (originally June 11th), will follow their outstanding 2011 sophomore effort, Dye It Blonde.

The video features two youthful lovers frolicking through life in a dreamy haze. Combining wistful images with slow motion make out scenes and adorable cuddle sessions, the clip is extremely endearing, albeit a bit nauseatingly cute at times.
