30 Days, 30 Artists
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.
