Washed Out's standout track from his sophomore album, Paracosm, now has an accompanying official music video. If you thought the song itself was chillwave, the video is even chillier, evoking feelings of heartbreak and loss. A one-minute and twenty-second intro featuring two friends discussing a recent breakup sets up the main attraction: a road trip to find the girl responsible for Victor's heartache. Upon finding the responsible party(s), the devastated Victor does what any depressed, angry, emotional, and normal teen would do. He wildly swings a baseball bat at his ex-lover's new lover, duh. However crazy and entertaining that may be, it's impossible to ignore Victor's hurt. Washed Out's luscious soundscape is a perfect soundtrack for this harrowing adventure.
You can hear more of Washed Out's dreamy instrumentation on Zumic's full iTunes album stream of Paracosm. Visit Washed Out's Zumic artist page to see his tour schedule.
