[Watch] Beirut - "The Rip Tide" (Official Video)

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.
