video: "Settle Down" - VARSITY

We still have a few months left in this otherwise terrible year, but it feels totally right to announce that "Settle Down" from VARSITY is the most adorable track and video you'll experience this year. Their sunny, jubilant indie pop has never sounded bright and the track provides equal encouragement in its message, channeling the headaches of experiencing a block in creativity to song. As the band explains in the premiere on Noisey, the track follows months of playing it, hoping for inspiration to hit and finally they just grew tired of waiting and worked out a song around the opening line - "Do you have to look the part of mess up a work of art." The single comes from a TBA record and is just brief enough to spend playing on repeat until more is revealed. Additionally, you can also catch the group on tour and practice some of your dance moves.
