Scenic World (2:07)

Cover of Gulag Orkestar

From Gulag Orkestar and 11 other releases

A song by Beirut which features on their first album, The Gulag Orkestar, and also in another form on the “Lon Gisland EP”. The former is a bedroom pop-fuelled ballad, featuring Condon singing over keyboard synths and an upbeat drum sound, with synthed strings filling in the gaps later on. On the EP however, the song is replicated with physical instruments. An organ makes up most of the texture of the track with Beirut’s trademark brass taking on the countermelody further into the track.

It’s a firm favourite of both the band and the audience live, and is usually played towards the end of the set.
