Okay, so maybe this isn’t exactly a music video per se — it’s more like a montage of some exotic vacation that just so happens to be synced up to Washed Out‘s sleeper hit jam “Feel It All Around.” The high-def video was created by filmmaker Chase Heavener, who just so happens to own an amazing camera (Seriously, the video looks amazing). The euphoric, chill song and happy, leisurely vacation footage go extremely nicely together.
Washed Out’s latest album Life of Leisure sounds like it could have been put together by a 5 person band. The truth is, though, that Washed Out is just the alias of Georgia native Ernest Greene. His sound can best be described as lo-fi, hazy electro-pop while his vocals are rhythmically intoxicating.
…[Greene’s] music is exquisite almost beyond belief, but it’s got a bleached/blanched-out quality, like a photograph that’s lost its lustre, or a slowly fading memory-tape of classic 60s and 70s (and some 80s, such as Tango In The Night-era F Mac) pop.
