When a band is called Free Cake for Every Creature, you’d expect the songs to be sweet and poppy. That’s exactly what we get on “For You,” a track taken from the Philadelphia / upstate New York project’s forthcoming Talking Quietly of Anything With You. The record will be out on April 15th through Double Double Whammy, with a release show at Everybody Hits the following night.

NPR’s Lars Gotrich premiered “For You’s” equally adorable video last week, paraphrasing the song’s message in the line “love is a floating doughnut.” The twee-pop love song name drops JC Penney’s, while the video shows the band doing some playful dance moves and also features onion rings, gumball machines and, yes, floating doughnuts.

Check out the video below and pick up tickets to the release show here. Free Cake also opens for Jeffrey Lewis at Boot & Saddle on March 14th along with Friendship.
