[Watch] Beirut – “Vagabond”

Beirut has released the video for “Vagabond”, off their 2011 album, The Rip Tide. The black-and-white clip, directed by Sunset Television, is set in the 1940s and it depicts a group of soldiers and nurses gathering in a ballroom to have fun and release tension by dancing, smoking and drinking excessively. The melancholia inherent to wartime is, however, ever-present throughout the video. Seems like a perfect fit for Beirut’s nostalgic sound. Watch below.
