Beirut has a new video, The Rip Tide , the title track off Zach Condon's album from last year.
Beirut have unveiled the video for the title track of last year's release, The Rip Tide . The video was directed by Houmam Abdallah and starts off a little on the slow side, but if you can stick around to about 2:46 you see everything change around the beautiful but desolate setting. From that point to the very end of the video you are nothing short of mesmerized. The band recently added more dates to their already lengthy tour. You can have a look to see if they're playing near you below. [...]
Beirut frontman, Zach Condon, posted a message regarding the visuals for the title track of their 2011 album The Rip Tide : "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 [...]

Beirut está estrenando video para el tema “The Rip Tide” , sencillo extraído del álbum que lleva ese mismo nombre. Bajo la dirección de Houmam Abdallah , un pequeño bote atraviesa el mar en condiciones adversas y después de los 2:50, la travesía se vuelve alucinante. No adelantaremos mucho, pero podemos decir que parece una tormenta de colores… Chequen, seguro les gustará.
A finales del año pasado Beirut lanzó su tercer álbum de estudio, The Rip Tide , un disco que hasta el momento nos ha dado muy buenos adelantos, tanto en audio como en video, y que ahora continúa sorprendiéndonos gracias a su nuevo video promocional , realizado para el track que le da título a la producción. El vídeo fue realizado por Houmam Abdallah, quien no sólo consiguió reflejar en el mismo sus propias aspiraciones, sino las de Zach Condon quien, como reveló en el mensaje [...]
A beautiful song and a beautiful video. The latest clip from Beirut for their 2011 album's title track was directed by Houmam Abdallah. Take a look at the music video of my favorite song from the band's LP, " Santa Fe ".
It's a life after death of sorts for Beirut 's The Rip Tide album, which reached our top spot this past year in terms of albums. As the album slowly slipped away from us in 2012, this video has rekindled our lost love for this remarkable collection from the indie scene's most treasured artists. Beirut's video for The Rip Tide 's title-track is one of the most beautiful and serene videos we've seen since Bon Iver's "Holocene" . As shown below, a ship slowly rocks in the [...]
Beirut nos presenta el video de "The Rip Tide" el nuevo sencillo del disco con el mismo nombre que salió el año pasado. Lo que al principio parece un viaje en velero común y corriente, se vuelve en algo mágico. Enjoy.
Beirut : The Rip Tide - Video
This video for the title track off Beirut 's latest album starts off with some gorgeous footage of a boat on the open water. It's simple and peaceful, and then at 2:50, it reaches that elusive next level. Says Zach Condon: 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 [...]
Check out Beirut's newest addition to his artistic ways with the official video for 'The Rip Tide'. Zach Condon has this to say about the song and new video...

The title track from last year's Beirut LP The Rip Tide finally gets the seafaring video of Zach Condon's dreams. It's directed by Houmam Abdallah and comes with an explanatory note from Mr. Condon - though the most important note of all for the impatient is to sit tight until the three minute mark. Once you do that, you will get why I now call this song "The Rip Tie-Die." Read More...

Having just watched Terrence Malick's 'Days of Heaven' and being spellbound by some of the imagery, this new Beirut video perfectly spills into my morning with more beautiful eye candy. I know that I've hit the back button on the track form the album that bears the same name more times than I care to admit - I've got a feeling I'll be doing the same with this video. Enjoy!
It's been about a year since Beirut dropped their fourth album The Rip Tide and they're still dropping gorgeous videos for it. This time, for the album's title track, it's a solitary boat sailing through the sea as wonderfully-simplistic yet beautifully-striking imagery is being played out above the horizon.
