Washed Out- “Eyes Be Closed”

“Eyes Be Closed” is the first preview into Washed Out’s upcoming (and first Sub Pop) album Within or Without.  The track is a definite stand out against the chill-wave scene that Washed Out grew in to, and is a sure sign of some impressive growth.  To me, the track’s sweeping synths and chord progression are reminiscent of Moby, giving the song an almost dated feel.  But dated to a time in my life when things were all a bit easier, so I don’t necessarily mind revisiting those years…
