Beirut’s Zach Condon is a full grown man

Beirut started small. Sante Fe, New Mexico’s Zach Condon launched the project from his teenage bedroom, crafting a lush, romantic fusion of indie pop and Balkan folk. Over six years, the project swelled to a sextet and released four widely loved albums, earning them a place on the radar. The Rip Tide is the band’s latest, Condon’s most adult creation to date.
