NEW VIDEO: BEIRUT ‘VAGABOND’

Beirut has released the new video for Vagabond, from their 2011 full-length The Rip Tide.

The black-and-white clip, directed by Sunset Television, plays off the track’s title, with the feel of a low-budget 1940s war film.

The video, shot at the Greenpoint, Brooklyn hall Warsaw, pictures a group of soldiers and sailors “flirting with nurses and hard-living local girls at a dance,” the directors said. It was inspired by the aesthetic of Milos Forman films from the 1960s. The directors added, “With all the smoking, drinking, and advanced pregnancy, the video will probably be banned from MTV, so we hope lots of people enjoy it on the internet.”
