Washed Out Heading To The UK And Releasing Debut EP

April 20, 2010 by  

Washed Out has announced he is about to embark on a European tour and release his debut EP ‘Life of Leisure’ for the first time on the Mexican Summer label, 14th June 2010

Washed Out is Ernest Weatherly Greene, a 26-year old from Perry, Georgia who crafts blissed-out synthpop in his bedroom.

Greene began making music when he moved back to his native Georgia from Columbia, South Carolina to live with his parents in summer 2009. There, he set up a basic studio in his bedroom and recorded by night when his folks went to bed.

“My parents live out in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of this peach orchard,” says Greene. “It’s very rural, and there is nothing much going on, so I guess that’s had a big influence on everything, as far as just not having much to do. I put a lot into these songs.”
