Girls' Generation has a new, cheery pop gem that's perfect for the summer.

The girl group's new single "Party" is an ode to partying with your ladies, topped off with a saccharine chorus about drinking together. The song even winks at past summer smashes with a guitar line similar to Katy Perry's "California Gurls" and some Auto-Tune croons by way of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky."

The accompanying video sees the K-pop phenoms flying to Thailand's beaches for girl time on the beach, at the pool and in their own exclusive club. The gals are all donning bikini bathing suits -- which is more or less risque for the group who have typically opted for feminine and cute looks rather than full-on provocateur. But these bikinis aren't for snagging the boys, these are for partying with your girls -- and the octet look like they're having the most fun they've had on a video in years.

"Party" is the first of three singles Girls' Generation plans to release this summer. Look out for "Lion Heart" and "You Think," which appear to serve jazz-pop and hip-hop sounds, respectively.

The new single leads off Girls' Generation's as-yet-untilted new album, the follow up to 2014's Mr.Mr. EP that marked one of the few K-pop albums to rank high on the Billboard 200 when it hit No. 110.
