Guards get a head start on summer lovin' in the video for "Ready to Go," an arms aloft anthem off last year's In Guards We Trust LP. The black-and-white clip offers a fond look at small-town teenage romance: sparkler-lit glances, polka-dot bathing suits, backseat make-outs, games of "spin the flashlight," suggestive ice cream cone licks, the whole shebang. And frontman Richie Follin's crew of meat-and-potatoes-fed nostalgia rockers are just the outfit to usher in the season. Is it June yet?
