Last month, Smith Westerns shared a video done in conjunction with FOR NO ONE, a collective that offers "an intimate glimpse of bands playing to a room without a crowd." That clip captured a performance of "Varsity," the dreamy first single from the Chicago crew's upcoming Soft Will LP. Now, SPIN is happy to present a second bit of footage the garage-glammers filmed during FOR NO ONE. The above short, directed by Daniel Ryan, features a live rendition of the new album's opening romancer, "3am Spiritual."
