Directed by designer Kate Moross and filmed at the London Zoo, Washed Out's latest video "Don't Give Up" focuses us on the exquisite details and natural beauty of animals. Moross goes in for close-ups on flamingos and pulls brilliant colors from her subjects while also evoking our nostalgia for Mutual of Omaha specials in the slow-motion segments.
