Is it possible to be pretty moved by a music video, but also find it impossibly weird? That’s what we’re dealing with with this video for Beirut’s “Santa Fe,” a clip in which a dude loses his girl and his dog, before he submits to some baptism at sea. It’s alternately the most touching video I’ve seen in a while, and the weirdest. This is also the most emotional and beautiful cut on Beirut’s The Rip Tide, which probably helps a great deal. But still. Watch the video at the Guardian.
The Rip Tide is out now.
