Beirut

Elephant Gun

NME Logo
Zach Condon, the man who is Beirut, is so absurdly talented and steeped in obscure European folk for a 21-year-old that it’s not surprising certain other musicians want to punch him. ‘Elephant Gun’ is yet more entirely charming, thoroughly odd marvellousness to stoke those envious blazes. Little more than mandolin, brass, military drumming and some gorgeous multi-layered harmonies, it is as odd and joyous as waking up on a yacht you never knew you owned.
