When Devon told me to check out “Venice,” but told me it was “different” than most Beirut, i’ll be honest…it scared me. Then I took a listen, and all that fear vanished. The slow tempo electronica works flawlessly with the signature impassioned vocals of front man Zach Condon, and the horns pull everything together. “Venice,” as simple as it is, drips with emotion. It's one of those songs that reaches inside of you and takes hold of you-- it's music you can feel. It will be available on the compilation CD that accompanies the annual music issue of magazine The Believer so check your local bookstores and news stands.
