WATCH: Washed Out’s ‘Weightless’ Short Is A Hazy Story Of Unrequited Gay Love
By Alex Panisch
Remember your high school crush? Was it on a straight boy? It’s hard to forget those infatuations in our formative years. All that longing and hurt. Remember how much all of that stung? Chill Wave powerhouse Washed Out have released a short film for “Weightless,” a cut off last year’s Paracosm, that quite perfectly captures those feelings. Poignant but distant and sliding between fantasy and reality, the David Altobelli mini-film is the perfect accompaniment to Washed Out’s dreamy, synthy track.
