Riff: Smith Westerns – “Varsity”

Mar 7, 2013

And I know it’s hard to be alone/Count the days, count the nights, but I don’t get by

from Varsity lyrics by http://www.songlyrics.com/smith-westerns-lyrics/

Chicago’s youngblood power-pop set amp the glam on their ripped-jeaned kicks, still not over their teenage angst as they approach a Beach Housian 20-something wallow. The hooks may be windswept, but behind their shades well some loser tears for varsity flex. Of course, we all know who gets the girl.
