Why See Beirut?
The Indie Pop Phenomenon Returns
A world music-influenced indie-rock band, the band started in a teenager's bedroom in New Mexico. That former teenager, multi-instrumentalist and frontman Zach Condon, is now joined by members Perrin Cloutier, Nick Petree, Paul Collins, Kelly Pratt and Ben Lanz. 2019 will see them back on the road in support of their 5th record, Gallipoli, to be released next February.
Combining upbeat singable pop with the old-world feel of Balkan Gypsy Folk music, accordion, brass and strings meld perfectly the subtle theatricality of Condon's melodious voice and the delicate strains of his ukulele. Their music is uplifting and danceable, evoking a hazy Summer spent in charming European climes.
