Washed Out Melbourne Date


Chillwave sideshows roll into town.

The flag bearer of the chillwave movement will be bringing his warm, laid back sound to Melbourne this December.

Prior to June 2009, Ernest was producing music from his bedroom studio in the small town of Perry, Georgia. He would pass cassettes around to his friends but had never intended on releasing anything official. After uploading a few songs to MySpace in July, Washed Out was quickly discovered by the influential blog world. A whirlwind of activity followed with a sold out CMJ showcase in October and eight shows at SXSW in March of 2010, US tours with the likes of Beach House and Yeasayer and the release of his debut Life Of Leisure EP.

Washed Out will perform at The Toff In Town on Sunday December 12.
