Washed Out‘s Ernest Greene has shared a new video for “Paralyzed“, the third new single taken from his upcoming album Purple Noon, out this Friday August 7th via Sub Pop. The video was directed by acclaimed fashion film director Caroline Koning. Shot in her native Holland, the clip shows real-life couple Shay and Dorien in an unguarded, intimate moment, set to a classically Washed Out ethereal pop track about the power of longing and lust.
Speaking of the video, director Caroline Koning says: “Human contact, and something as simple as a touch, has new meaning in the context of today. These special times make the viewing experience of physical togetherness a different one, and I wanted to tap into that sentiment in a pure way. The couple we follow in the film capture this simplicity beautifully, and what we see on screen all happened very organically. Encapsulating a perhaps general longing for closeness through a very unpretentious narrative gives this spot a natural honesty that I think visualizes the track in a strong manner.”
