Mistletone and Penny Drop are happy to announce that Washed Out and Toro Y Moi are teaming up for two blissed-out double headline shows around Laneway Festival.

The friendship between Toro Y Moi‘s Chaz Bundick and Washed Out’s Ernest Greene goes back to their high school days in South Carolina. Growing up in the south with a host of shared influences and aesthetics, both artists have maintained a mutual admiration and love of collaboration as they have followed their own trajectories, each wielding an increasingly resonant influence over the musical culture of today. Having remixed each other’s tunes and toured together in the US, and now sharing a place on the Laneway Festival lineup, it makes perfect sense for Washed Out and Toro Y Moi to join forces for two special shows in Sydney and Melbourne.

The solo project of Ernest Greene, Washed Out has transformed under watchful eyes since his perpetually lush synth-pop took world stage in 2009. Borne from the back-porch of his parents’ rural Georgia home, his first recordings – the Life of Leisure and High Times EPs – saw him rise to the forefront of his genre, before a debut album, Within and Without was released to widespread acclaim this July.

The past year has been intensely successful for Toro Y Moi, led by prolific and multi-talented 24 year old South Carolina musician / producer / designer / photographer Chaz Bundick. Toro Y Moi’s achievements this year include an acclaimed sophomore album, Underneath the Pine; remix work for Tyler, the Creator; a split 7” with Cloud Nothings; a 12” single under his house music moniker, Les Sins; a steady stream of international tour dates; and most recently, a brilliant new 12? EP Freaking Out (out now on Mistletone Records / Inertia). Toro Y Moi rose to the fore of the music blogosphere in summer 2009, when Chaz and a few peers made their hazy bedroom recordings the most talked-about sound of the season. Critics across the board took notice of the range of Toro Y Moi’s compositions, and his debut album Causers of This (Mistletone 2009) showcased his ability to make elements of Brian Wilson’s pop, 80s R&B, and Stones Throw hip hop coalesce into a distinct sound that’s as suitable for a dancefloor as it is a pair of headphones.
