With the August 12th release of  Paracosm the brand new studio album by Ernest Greene, AKA Washed Out, fast approaching (out everywhere on August 12th) we’re really thrilled to be able to share this gloriously shot new video for lead single ‘Don’t Give Up’ — shot and directed by the hugely talented designer and artist Kate Moross at London Zoo last month. An ultra-vivid and gently trippy loving depiction of the animal kingdom and the ebb and flow of its mesmeric rhythms, the piece is a wonderous summertime wormhole to slip away into and the perfect accompaniment to Greene’s swollen-hearted, escapist anthem.

Also, the good people at Creators Project  recently travelled with Ernest to the Audities Museum in Calgary to discuss the plethora of interesting and obscure electronic instruments used in the making of Paracosm, resulting in a great two-part documentary – part one of which you can see now:

Paracosm is out on August 12th. Pre-order your copy now.
