Bringing you a unique new style of terror, their music is inspired by the 80s metal sound of Metallica mixed with the strong, industrial grooves of Ministry, Rammstein and Static-X; from the classic horror/sci-fi stories that make your skin crawl, their lyrics and samples give a spooky, Rob Zombie/Marilyn Manson feel to the music.
Washed Out is Ernest Greene, a young guy from Perry, Georgia, USA who makes bedroom synthpop that sounds blurred and woozily evocative, like someone smeared Vaseline all over an early OMD demo tape, then stayed up all night trying to recreate what they heard. There’s a sense of longing and distance in Greene’s somber, filtered vocals, but it’s what he does compositionally that makes Washed Out stand out. Backed by gently pulsing, Balearic-tinged disco, Greene’s voice takes on a new dimension.
