Gallipoli | Skip to main content


Of Beirut’s latest single, frontman Zac Condon says: “We stumbled into the medieval-fortressed island town of Gallipoli one night, and followed a brass band procession fronted by priests carrying a statue of the town’s saint through the winding narrow streets”. With that in mind, and with the distant DNA of Morricone spaghetti westerns and classic Mariachi inspired era Lambchop echoing quietly in the background, the scene is set for this delightful bit of classic Beirut style trumpet led folk.
