[Watch] Beirut – “The Rip Tide”

Beirut has released some new visuals for “The Rip Tide”, the title track from last year’s LP. The video is just plain gorgeous. For the first two minutes or so, you’ll see nothing special: just a small boat floating nicely on the water. But after that, the video transforms into something completely different, as these big, ethereal clouds descend and envelop the sailboat and paint the sky with constantly changing colors – from crimson, to blue and green. And it all just makes more sense with Beirut’s beautifully layered arrangements. Just gorgeous. Watch below.
