In June, Beirut released the video for “No No No,” a clip that had the band using baguettes and skunks as instruments. In the latest video from the band, “Gibraltar, directed by Brother Willis again, the group wandered across an island that looked nothing like the track’s namesake, the Mediterranean destination. It is completely overrun by trash which Beirut go through and try to salvage. Watch here.
As the follow-up to The Rip Tide, No No No is set to be released on September 11th through 4AD.
Beirut has premiered the video for “No No No”, the lead single from their upcoming album of the same title. The video, which was directed by Brother Willis, sees the band performing on an American Bandstand sort of stage that is rigged with surprises.
Rather than performing on normal instruments, the band is forced to play on strange objects such as skunks and baguettes. There is a scene even where Zach Condon is smashed in the head with a random #dadbod. Watch it below.
The album, No No No is the follow-up to the widely acclaimed The Rip Tide and will come out September 11th through 4AD.
