Published Jun 22, 2012Still out repping 2011's The Rip Tide, Beirut have returned with a new seafaring vid for the record's title track.
In a statement, Beirut's own Zach Condon had this to say about the project's latest visuals, directed by Houmam Abdallah:
I always felt that The Rip Tide wasn't fully able to project its own ambitions in song form.. no matter how it was performed or recorded, it felt contained by sound alone... I wanted more, as I often do with my music, and this is not a bad thing. Growing to accept a song's limits is part of the process of creating and loving them. Which was why I was so excited to see what Houmam had dug into when he picked The Rip Tide out of all others for a video. The concept fit, and the product brought the song somewhere that I had only been able to describe to myself, now available for others to see and feel it much more as I had in the process of writing it."
