Rising chillwave star Washed Out (aka Ernest Greene) is following up the release of his much hyped debut LP, Within and Without, with a cover of Chris Isaak’s sultry classic “Wicked Game”. The Sub Pop Records signee got his start in rural Georgia recording songs in his bedroom, which is exactly where his songs are most likely to be played. If you don’t know about Washed Out yet, you will very soon.
I have attached some songs from his most recent LP below, as well as a link to the Sirius XMU session performance where he covered “Wicked Game”.
