Ernest Greene, better known as Washed Out, is the pioneer of chillwave—a hazy, blissed-out genre of dream pop best suited for ultimate relaxation, daydreaming, and escaping the burdens of everyday life. While chillwave went on to be explored by artists like Toro y Moi and Neon Indian, Washed Out remains the genre’s icon, as he proves on his latest album, Mister Mellow. Released in June of this year, Mister Mellow laments the monotony of young adulthood—unfulfilled fantasies, the dreaded 9-to-5 routine, and soul-crushing boredom despite a stress-free, privileged life.
