VIDEO: Dirty Beaches // “West Coast Bird”

YouTube Preview Image

Here’s a curveball from Vancouver’s Dirty Beaches: the shuffling, vibraphone driven slow-burn of West Coast Bird is something you’d expect to find on a Stones Throw comp. On top of that, the video is blue and voyeuristic, bringing to mind Wong Kar-wai’s Chungking Express. I guess the indie beach tropes have left me cynical.

Dirty Beaches’ Bird EP is available now on Fixture Records.
