Let yourself get washed away to the dreamy sounds of Washed Out

Washed Out
Washed Out plays three official showcases during SXSW 2014. Washed Out/ Facebook

Name: Washed Out

Featured track: "Pull You Down"

Genre: Dreamy pop

City of origin: Perry, Georgia

In one sentence: "Bedroom synthpop that sounds blurred and woozily evocative, like someone smeared Vaseline all over an early OMD demo tape, then stayed up all night trying to recreate what they heard." - Pitchfork

Why we chose them: Arguably one of the biggest names in our series, Washed Out, the brainchild of Ernest Greene, creates the kind of dreamy jams that just make you want to jump in a car, roll the windows down and drive for days. If you skipped Washed Out at Fun Fun Fun Fest last year, don't miss your chance to catch Greene and company during one of three official showcases this weekend. 

SXSW official showcases: Friday, March 14 at 7 pm at Butler Park; Friday, March 14 at 12:30 am at Bar 96; Saturday, March 15 at 1 am at Hype Hotel
