L.A. rock band Dawes announced their newest album today and shared the first single and music video off the upcoming release. All Your Favorite Bands, the band's fourth album, will drop on June 2 through their own label, HUB Records. The first song, "Things Happen", premiered at NPR. Robin Hilton had this to say about the track:

It's often said that reality is nine-tenths perception — that your level of happiness or misery in life depends way more on how you view your circumstances than the circumstances themselves. Sometimes it's best to just shrug everything off and say, "things happen" (or words to that effect).

It's the driving notion behind a new ear-worm and video from the Los Angeles-based rock group Dawes.

I've always admired Dawes' ability to craft songs that are as contemplative and intellectually stimulating as they are aesthetically pleasing. The melody and opening guitar chord progressions immediately pull you in, but you stay for Taylor Goldsmith's opines on the little things that gnaw at us. It's a delightful track and a sign of good things to come on the next album.

Check out the video for the track below, which features a street performer trying to find a corner to work on. He repeatedly gets harassed by members of the band before finding a bit of redemption at the end.
