Video: Washed Out Don’t Give Up

Washed Out’s latest record, titled Paracosm, is the sophomore offering from the Georgian solo-act. There are high expectations to live up to for the artist as his debut record, Within and Without, sent the indie world into some sort of fuzzy, lo-fi freakout. Upon listening to Don’t Give Up, we have faith that this record will impress fiendish fans.

The hypnotic video for the song was captured by Kate Moross, and is stunningly beautiful. Filmed at the London Zoo, the video has warped imagery of colour saturated gorillas, interplanetary purple ferns swaying and these fantastic, super intimate frames of lions going about their business in the animal kingdom.

Paracosm is out on the August 9 through Sub Pop. Have you seen the really interesting two-part docco that focuses on the instrumentation found on the album yet? Part one is here and part two is here.
