WATCH: Washed Out Gets Colorful and Floral Once More in Lyric Video For “Don’t Give Up”

By Staff on June 25, 2013


Two weeks ago, Washed Out (Ernest Greene) shared a kaleidoscopic, psychedelic lyric video for “It All Feels Right,” the lead single from his sophomore release Paracosm, which is due out August 13th via Sub Pop Records. Today, he’s done the same for the album’s second single, “Don’t Give Up,” another celestial, nostalgia-inducing number that was seemingly made for summer.


With its scuzzy synthetic sounds and tropical percussion, the lush and languorous “Don’t Give Up” has a slower burn than “It All Feels Right.” Listening to "Don't Give Up," it seems as if Paracosm's second single is further evidence for Greene’s stylistic shift away from chillwave and towards a more poppy sound. We’re sure that you’ll have “Don’t Give Up” on repeat at the beach this weekend…we know we will! 

Watch the flower-filled lyric video above and don't forget to consult Paracosm's tracklist as well as supporting tour dates below.
