Last year, Washed Out released the beautifully gooey sophomore album Paracosm. Now, David Altobelli has directed a gorgeous seven-and-a-half-minute video for “Weightless,” telling a story about teenagers and longing. The video’s actual narrative is almost pedestrian, and it plays out exactly the way you think it will. But the cinematography is so pretty that you almost can’t believe it, and it has all these great dream-logic cutaways to slow-motion hummingbirds and bodies suspended in air, and the whole thing amounts to a blissfully sad viewing experience. Check it out below.
Paracosm is out now on Sub Pop.
