The Washed Out Giveaway
Ernest Greene, better known as the bedroom producer Washed Out, has come a long way since being holed up in his parents’ Georgia home. Don’t be mislead by the hazy, distorted sounds of his Sub Pop debut, Within and Without. This fella can deliver alongside a full band. We had the chance to catch Washed Out at last September’s Laneway Festival in Detroit, and were blown away by how engaging his live show was compared to his recordings. His albums are by no means boring, but they epitomize the interpretation of his genre to a T. Other recognizable chillwave artists such as Neon Indian haven’t made quite the impact as Greene has on the masses.
While most fans are familiar with early hits like “Feel it All Around”, “Eyes Be Closed” and “Don’t Give Up”, he’s still got singles droppin from 2013’s Parcosum, such as the one below, whose video debuted in June.
