Artist: Washed Out
Song: “Amori Fati”
Album: Within and Without
If you’ve yet to hear of him, we are happy to pass along Washed Out, who we feel is really hitting his stride. This entire album, Within and Without, is stunning. Featured here, “Amori Fati” is one of the more up beat numbers on the album. The track absolutely grabbed me when I first heard it. Although you may not see this group in the top 40, the music is impossible to ignore.
Washed Out is the project of Ernest Greene, who began producing music just like many musicians today, in a makeshift home studio. His music has grown to be classified as “chillwave, ” such as similiar artists, Neon Indian, Toro Y Moi, Panda Bear and Memory Tapes. Of course, Washed Out has a flavor of all his own, and we hope you enjoy it.
