Approved: Washed Out – Get Lost

By | Published on Tuesday 30 May 2017

Washed Out, aka producer Ernest Greene, is back with his first new material for four years. New single ‘Get Lost’ heralds a new record deal with Stones Throw.

A slight shift away from earlier material, ‘Get Lost’ is a woozy disco track, with vocals that drift across its surface. Underpinned by solid drums and bass, the other instruments are allowed to work at varying levels of focus. Some percussion elements sound completely sharp, a decayed piano runs throughout, and a saxophone solo appears like the recording has been cut up and played back through a wall.

The track’s video, directed by Harvey Benschoter, adopts a complementary cut up and otherworldly feel. Watch that here…
