Dirty Beaches, “Casino Lisboa”

This latest video from Alex Zhang Hungtai of Dirty Beaches is as representative of the song behind its storyboard, "Casino Lisboa", as it is the dark, menacing soundscape of Dirty Beaches' entire oeuvre. In the scene, we encounter live footage from a flashing dungeon of a Dirty Beaches performance, all intercut with scenes from the grimy underbelly of an unnamed city that could potentially be a hotspot in Hungtai's native Taiwan. With scenes of motorbikes, strip clubs, street boxing, and break dancing, this is a colorful, vibrant landscape of a city that truly comes alive at night.

Dirty Beaches' latest double record Drifters/Love Is the Devil is out on Zoo Music this week.
