Washed Out (Ernest Greene) just released an audio/visual album called Mister Mellow, and we're excited to be a part of it. Our video for "Floating By" is as much inspired by the song's lyrics (all apathy, boredom, and escape ) as by its collaged together, trippy sound. Like the song, our video is a mashup of parts that flow together, starting out very methodical, illustrating the theme of boredom and the feeling of just going through the motions. Eventually it gets weirder and weirder—bright colors take over and the video goes from routine to daydreaming to escape the everyday grind.
