I’m dubbing today “Chillwave Monday” because next Monday is the most summery of all holidays, and if you’re like me, you’re going to be relaxing at the beach, playing bocce ball, and not thinking a damn bit about work.
So, what better to feature than the new single “You And I” from Washed Out to get us prepped? This one just so happens to also be the fourth release from the Kia Adult Swim Singles Program, which was packed with eight great releases in just eight weeks. Corporate America is seriously upping their indie game!
And judging by the sound, Washed Out is also stepping things up. The song features their trademark chillwave sound, but the production is tighter and far more polished. Caroline Polachek of Chairlift is also featured on the track, contributing to the backing vocals.
Ride the chillwave below.
