Earlier this month, the former chillwaver Washed Out shared “It Feels All Right,” the lush and languorous first single from his forthcoming sophomore album Paracosm, as a flower-filled lyric video. Today, he’s done the same for “Don’t Give Up,” the album’s second single. And like “It Feels All Right,” this one feels like evidence of a stylistic shift, away from gently awed New Order-esque synthpop and toward the sort of rippling acid-head beach party that could only happen in our collective dreams. Check out the song, and its lyric video, below.
The Ben Allen-produced Paracosm is out 8/13 on Sub Pop.
