Weezer said that its new self-titled record, deemed The White Album was heavily influenced by Los Angeles. If the album's lyrics, artwork and throwback Weezer sound haven't been indication enough of this influence, then the new music video for "L.A. Girlz" will seal the deal.
On Thursday (Feb. 18) just one day after debuting the track on Zane Lowe's Apple Beats 1 radio show, Weezer released the official visuals for "L.A. Girlz." Though Rivers Cuomo and co. don't appear in the video, a boy is clearly meant to be the stand-in for the Weezer frontman. Donning Cuomo's signature big frame eyeglasses, a plaid dress shirt, jeans and black skater shoes, the child dances and gallivants on a sunny California beach.
While his dancing seems gleeful from far away, he's clearly pining for a love, as he sends out multiple Snapchats to his beloved, hoping that she will join him on the beach and return his affection.
The mini-Rivers' dreams ae fulfilled when a string bikini wearing woman joins him on the beach. Now, he no longer needs to dance alone and the two finally come together in a series of sweet dance-offs.
All the while, the heavy guitar, Blue Album vibes of Weezer's "L.A. Girlz" play, giving this Cali-centric video an extra dose of sun.
"L.A. Girlz" is the fourth song to be rolled out from Weezer's The White Album. It follows the release of "Thank God for Girls," "Do You Wanna Get High?" and "King of the World." Weezer's new album is due for release on April 1.
