Radio M

Interviews: Zach Condon

Zach Condon is a 23 year old high school drop out who's been making records since he was 15 years old. He gained widespread attention with last year's Gulag Orkestar, an album of Balkan influenced music, recorded under the band name "Beirut".

After that critically acclaimed release, Condon released two EP's before working on his follow up full length.

Beirut's latest is titled 'The Flying Club Cup" and while the music retains Condon's now familar whimsy and meloncholy, he looks to Paris for inspiration.

Condon talks with Radio M host Tony Sarabia about the new release and touring the world.
