The latest music video for Washed Out is all window sheers and cross breezes. It is, in essence, why I wish to be in near-constant proximity to Washed Out, to queue up a makeout at a moment's notice.

This long-form clip, directed by David Altobelli, also has a really beautiful, heart-rending story, about youth, first touch and “unrequited love.” Check out the disappearing scars, the times of slow-motion's employ. And do you remember rollerblades? God, do I remember rollerblades, and waking dreamers who were in them.

“Weightless” is from the latest album “Paracosm”; Washed Out (aka Ernest Greene) is on tour this summer, dates below the video.
