Video: Washed Out - Eyes Be Closed (Live)
Thanks to the Guardian Newspaper's "How I Wrote..." sessions, Ernest Greene explains just how he wrote the track 'Eyes Be Closed' off the debut album Within and Without. Greene divulges the problems that he encountered along the way with how he 'wrote the intro and the two verses and then hit a wall' and how it took 8 months of tweaking and reworking before it coming together into the awesome tune we now love. Following this short history of the track, the band showcase an awesome live performance in the Guardian Studios.
