Official video by Sunset Television

Beirut is an American band which was originally the solo musical project of Santa Fe native Zach Condon, and later expanded into a band. Beirut's music combines elements of indie-rock and world music. The band's first performances were in New York, in May 2006, to support the release of their debut album, Gulag Orkestar. Despite their name, Beirut had never performed in Lebanon until they appeared at the Byblos International Festival in August 2014.

Here is an explanation of the band's name by Condon: “One of the reasons I named the band after that city was the fact that it’s seen a lot of conflict. It’s not a political position. I worried about that from the beginning. But it was such a catchy name. I mean, if things go down that are truly horrible, I’ll change it. But not now. It’s still a good analogy for my music. I haven’t been to Beirut, but I imagine it as this chic urban city surrounded by the ancient Christian and Muslim worlds. The place where things collide”.

The Rip Tide is the third studio album by the American indie folk band Beirut, released in August 30, 2011.

The Rip Tide has appeared on a few end-of-year lists. Paste ranked The Rip Tide #20 on its list of the top 50 albums of 2011, while Mojo ranked the album #22 on its end-of-year list.
