Number 17: Washed Out-Amor Fati
This was the year when people started to finally take Chillwave seriously as a sub-genre of electronic music. Out in front alongside Toro Y Moi as the standard bearers was Ernest Greene, better known as Washed Out. The melodic vocals and sweeping loops create a beautiful song, that could be listened to floating in a boat along a stream.
