The ultra-mellow crooner that is Ernest Greene, perhaps better known by his stage name of Washed Out has offered another delightful gem titled Don’t Give Up from his forthcoming album Paracosm. The track has been given a music video straight off the bat, which you can watch below.
The dreamy instrumentals and lofty vocals sync perfectly with the selected visuals. For this particular video, Greene has relied solely on the aesthetic display of Mother Nature. The clip was actually filmed at London Zoo and sees many of the main attractions appear in lead roles. Using close ups, and footage at various speeds, Greene captures the animal kingdom in all its glory with a track that matches seamlessly.
You may have caught the album teaser which was released earlier this year and judging by what we’ve heard then and today, Don’t Give Up fits in nice and snug alongside the heavy instrumentals and broad soundscapes of the rest of the release. We will know for sure on Friday, 9th August when Paracosm is officially released.
