Watch Soccer Team’s New Video For “Best Employed New Beau”


After several years without an official release, Soccer Team reemerged this fall with a couple new songs and the announcement of a forthcoming album, called Real Lessons in Cynicism.  Their tracks are simple, minimal and direct, and it’s a pleasant detour from the many other new releases that have come out this season.

Knowing this, it makes sense that Soccer Team’s new music video for “Best Employed New Beau” (another song off their new album) reflects this simplicity. There are no over-the-top visual effects or storylines built into it. For a band that hasn’t come out with anything new in a while, it might seem a little weird to not have something that makes a grand statement. But, that’s not what Soccer Team is about. Instead, it’s a short, straightforward video that captures exactly who they are.

Real Lessons in Cynicism is available for pre-order from Dischord. The band will also celebrate their record release show at Comet Ping Pong this Sunday.
