Beirut Set Sail in 'The Rip Tide'
Gorgeous clouds of color in new clip

In the new video for "The Rip Tide," indie folk group Beirut present serene, mesmerizing scenery with a boat sailing on the sea. As singer-songwriter Zach Condon sings over beautifully layered orchestral arrangements, the little boat continues on its way, drifting along the wind and the currents. As the video approaches the end, gorgeous, ethereal clouds of crimson and blue envelop the sailboat, draping the ship in constantly changing colors. The clip soothes until the climax, taking the video's visual reality to magical heights.

"The Rip Tide" is on Beirut's most recent album, The Rip Tide.
