Little Beirut Release New Video, Announce New Album
They also released a video for the album's first single and lead track, "Last Light," which you can view here
"One of the things I tell people when I give them the album is to expect it to be a pretty big fat pop record, because thatšs something that stands out here," says Hamilton Sims (vocals, guitar). "Wešre not avant garde, we're not trying to weird you out."
It's clear from the first track that Little Beirut has built their foundation on a respect for the bands that elevated pop music beyond what's merely popular. These are songwriters who grew up on college radio listening to REM and the Smiths, and "Fear of Heaven" is filled with gorgeous potential hits devoid of any sense of irony or apology for what they are.
