Today underage Chicago rockers The Smith Westerns released this video for their Britpoppy tune "Weekend," the first single off their upcoming album Dye It Blonde. Frontman Cullen Omori may coo about "a girl like you" on this upbeat track, but the fairer sex is nowhere to be seen in the video, directed by Focus Creeps. Instead, the band roams malls and convenience stores, browsing DVDs and overdosing on sugary snacks, during a typical day in their life in the suburbs--that is, until the video culminates with a ritualistic tree-chopping and the trippy, context-less image of a microphone dripping with honey, hinting that there may be more to this simple day than meets the eye.
