Washed Out – “Don’t Give Up” Video

Don’t Give Up” is a lush ripple of a single from Washed Out’s forthcoming sophomore album Paracosm. And for its video, director Kate Moross is on her Planet Earth shit, using nature-documentary footage so pretty and close-up that it seems almost hallucinatory. Moross zooms in tight on the various body parts of lions, giraffes, zebras, and about a million other animals, lightly tweaking her color palette as the video goes on. The effect is something like taking psychotropic mushrooms and visiting a zoo, which, now that I think about it, sounds like an awesome idea. Watch the video below.

Paracosm is out 8/13 on Sub Pop; check also first single “It Feels All Right.”
