Beirut – The Tern

Zach Condon alias Beirut veröffentlicht am 10. November sein neues Album Hadsel über sein eigenes Label Pompeii. Hier ist die zweite Single The Tern, über welche er Folgendes sagt:

The base of this song comes from an old Roland synthesizer and drum machine part which I had lying around from a previous Berlin session. The lyrics I improvised on the spot and finished the song off by adding layers of church organs and hand percussion. I stacked the parts high despite always being afraid of overdoing it. In the end I was confused how I had written such a seemingly positive and even hopeful song, but once I took a closer look at the lyrics, I saw the real nature of the hidden defeat and triumph of caution rather than of hope.
