Beirut, "The Rip Tide"

  • Indie folk band sets sail against a gorgeous backdrop of colors

  • Tags:

    In the first two and half minutes of the new video for "The Rip Tide," the title track from Beirut's 2011 LP, director Houmam Abdallah presents us with the scene of a sailboat cutting through an endless sea. It's serene and meditative, a nice visual accompaniment to a great song, and it didn't prepare us in the least for what happens next. We won't spoil the ending for you, but hang in there until the three-minute mark and your eyes will be rewarded. Trust us.
