Ever fall completely head over heels in love with a song on the first listen? If you have, then you’ll know exactly how Beirut’s “Perth” has made me feel. I wanna make a movie about this song, is how I feel. In any case, it looks like I won’t have to, because Clara Aranovich has already directed a pretty fantastic video – our video of the week – to go along with it.

The song carries the kind of effortless melodic bounce that can’t help but make you smile, or dance even. The video runs with this instinctual reaction, presenting a protagonist who himself can’t seem to stop dancing, albeit with a purposefully ambiguous twist at the end. “Perth” comes off of Beirut’s latest album ‘No No No,’ which I highly recommend you check out, if you haven’t already. Dillon M.
