The Washed Out hype train is quickly picking up speed. After announcing his sophomore album Paracosm a few weeks back, Ernest Greene gave us the vibrant lead single "It All Feels Right." I was impressed. He's taking a more nuanced approach to his music, using a wide array of instruments to create a mellow sound with lots of depth. That approach is even more evident on his latest cut, the nostalgic "Don't Give Up." It begins and ends with the faded sounds of friends and family laughing, setting the perfect tone for three-and-a-half minutes of blissful summer listening. Stream it below in the form of a lyric video.
Paracosm is out on August 13th.
