We're big fans of Ethel Cain, and even bigger fans of this single, American Teenager.

And the song – the opener from Ethel's new album Preacher's Daughter – now has an accompanying music video, with the goth-pop singer explaining of the clip: "I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with one of my favourite people Silken Weinberg, who flew down to Florida and spent a couple days with me in my hometown, running around getting sunburnt and riding bikes to the high school football field in town.

"I dug my mom’s old cheerleading uniform out of the closet for the occasion. Looking at old pictures of my mom when she was my age cheering on that same football field was a huge inspiration when I was writing the song, so it only felt correct to play in her footsteps for the video. We shot it on the same camera we shot the God’s Country video on, trying to avoid any strict rules and just have a good time and shoot what felt natural and true to the essence of the song."
