Washed Out is Ernest Greene from Georgia, a bedroom synthpop musician.
His debut EP, 'Life of Leisure', was released via Mexican Summer in 2009, but it wasn't until the single Feel It All Around was used as a theme tune for American TV show Portlandia that Washed Out became better known in 2011. He signed to Subpop Records and started working with producer Ben Allen of Deerhunter and Animal Collective, and released his debut album, 'Within and Without' in the same year.
Greene moved to a rural area outside Athens, and the album that ensued, 2013's 'Paracosm', was much warmer and optimistic in response to his new surroundings.
After taking a step back, Washed Out returned in 2017 with a new label, a new sound more akin to his early chillwave days, and a new album, 'Mister Mellow'.
He is set to play Londons Heaven in December. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.

It turns out that chillwave is alive and well. At least it is in the mind of Ernest Greene, the man behind Washed Out. Now touting his third LP, ‘Mister Mellow’, it’s clear little has changed since he took up the mantle with the 2009 EP ‘Life of Leisure’.
