Smith Westerns ‘3am Spiritual’

Listening to the new single from Smith Westerns, you could assume it’s by a band from 1970’s or early 1990’s London, when in fact they are from modern day Chicago. After their breakthrough 2011 album ‘Dye It Blonde’, Smith Westerns have now let a layer of lush production and dream-like keyboards take over from their more lo-fi earlier approach.

Following up lead single ‘Varsity’, ‘3am Spiritual’ is taken from their forthcoming album ‘Soft Will’ out June 25th via Mom + Pop (June 24th on CO-OP in Europe) and builds with layered vocals, light drumming and sprawling synths until piano and guitars take over in a hazy and uplifting final minute.  Listen here:
