Washed Out - "Don't Give Up"

Videosalex nicollComment

Washed Out--a.k.a. Ernest Greene--releases this video for "Don't Give Up" off of his upcoming album, Paracosm.

Paracosm means a detailed fantasy world, and this video looks to make the creatures of our own world into the creatures that inhabit a paracosm. The video consists entirely of close-ups of animals that shift in color as frequently and dramatically as the phaser effect on the keyboards. The song itself is a lush jungle groove, the soundtrack to rambling in a humid environment. Even if the song doesn't do it for you, this video, courtesy of director Kate Moross, is a must watch.
