Washed Out - "Eyes Be Closed" (video-single)
While Ernest Greene is indeed the thinly-veiled frontman behind pioneering "Chill-Wave" act Washed Out, he's most definitely NOT featured within this most recent video release. The [visual] follow-up to what was originally released as a free digital download, "Eyes Be Closed" [now] plays out like a cycle-led trip through the future.
The mysterious "girl behind the 'bars" is actually Fashion Model/Actress, Coco Young; Under the direction of Timothy Saccenti + Alan Bibby, she rides through a number of lush, scenic landscape backdrops. Washed Out (Greene)'s official "debut" long-player, Within and Without, was recently released on Sub Pop-Domino... and is currently available @ Your Friendly Neighborhood Record Store.
