Washed Out, AKA Ernest Greene, is a young guy from Georgia who makes bedroom synthpop with a dreamy, shoegaze feel.
His latest creation is ‘Weightless’, from his album, ‘Paracosm’, which is accompanied by one of the most stunning music videos you will ever see. Directed by David Altobelli (M83, Sia, Conor Oberst), the vid beautifully tells the story of unrequited love. Altobelli says of the video, “Unrequited love is a universal emotion. In this case, the emotions are heightened because there exists yet another wall between the protagonist and the object of his affection. It’s heartbreaking and inevitable, but it’s also just part of being a kid in love”.
