Beirut – Postcards from Italy
No matter how long ago this was first released, I just can’t seem to put my finger on it, this Beirut video makes me smile every time. Perhaps it is the soft footage of beach side holidays, childhood friendships, the simple moments in time that make it all so innocent- what happiness of eating a watermelon as a kid, jumping into the deep end of the backyard pool, the care of a mother, kisses of grandparents. The video clip was directed by the all talented Alma Har’el.
Not only visually exciting but Beirut’s ensemble of folk, indie-rock tunes sound true to the ears that hear it. I am still smiling.
