See the world clearly

He just blue himself
Chillwave is not dead! Washed Out has a new album, Within and Without, coming out this summer through Sub Pop. I previously wrote a story about the album for Exclaim!, and now the single “Eyes Be Closed” has arrived.

Holy crap! This one is totally incredible. It’s part Boards of Canada-style IDM and part ’90s electronica (think Moby). And then there are some reverb-hazed guitars and cavernous vocal harmonies that are pure Washed Out.

    Sorry, no idea! “See the world clearly” was the only phrase I could make out.

    Haha same here! I googled “washed out see the world clearly” hoping someone would have the full lyrics, but no luck :/ Glad I found your site though.
