Music Video Monday: Washed Out — Eyes Be Closed

As I imagined it...

Sunglassed, porcelain-skinned model: “OK, so I’m supposed to be riding this motorcycle in front of a green screen while a fan blows my luxurious hair back for nearly four minutes. What’s my inspiration?”


Music video director with English accent: “Right, beau’iful, pretend it’s 1986 and airy synthesizers are back in fashion, just like that spotted dress you’re wearing. You’re first riding through a heavily industrial-looking city on your way out to the countryside, feeling sunshiney pleasure as you finally escape to the clean air. Lean forward and back on the motorcycle, unlike anybody who’s ever rode a motorcycle before. Oh! Now look with back just a hint of fear in your face to make sure nobody’s chasing you! All right, you’re safe now — except you’ve steered off the country road and into a swirling, three-dimensional world of black-and-white patterns that look like they belong in cartoons from the 1980s. Now you’re getting showered with confetti! And cut!”

Ernest Greene of Washed Out: “Now do it all again, but way more chill.”
