Washed Out shares video for “Weightless”, extends U.S. tour

on June 04, 2014, 10:20am

Chillwave maestro Ernest Greene, a.k.a. Washed Out, has unveiled the video for “Weightless”, one of the many standouts found on his latest LP, Paracosm. Directed by David Altobelli, the mini-movie focuses on the unrequited love affair between two young males, a sordid and evocative tale that shifts between surrealist fantasy and gritty reality. Like the similarly epic video for “All I Know”it’s a poignant tale that lends a sense of optimism while shining a light on slightly harsher facets of this world.

In a statement, Altobelli said, “Unrequited love is a universal emotion. In this case, the emotions are heightened because there exists yet another wall between the protagonist and the object of his affection. It’s heartbreaking and inevitable, but it’s also just part of being a kid in love.”

Greene has also expanded his tour schedule in support of Paracosm. He’ll wrap his ongoing leg later this month, including appearances at Governors Ball and Bonnaroo, before returning to the road from late August to mid-September. Consult the full schedule below.
