The lyric video for the single is in stark contrast to the band’s last single, “It All Feels Right.” The track is dance-floor ready but simultaneously subtle.
Says the press release of the new album,
The music recorded by Ernest Greene as Washed Out has been nothing if not dreamy, but for his second full-length, he’s taken the idea of letting your mind wander to another state a huge leap further. On Paracosm, the Georgia-based musician explores the album’s namesake phenomenon, where people create detailed imaginary worlds. The concept has been used to describe fantasy lands like Tolkien’s Middle Earth and C.S. Lewis’ Narnia, and it’s at the heart of the 2004 documentary In the Realms of the Unreal about outsider artist Henry Darger.
The new album will be available via Sub Pop Records on August 13th.
