When confronted with the question, “What band should we choose for this article?” We kind of stared at each other in puzzlement. We all listen to very different types of music so choosing one band that inspired all of us equally was particularly hard to decide right away. We spent some time on tour thinking about what band we wanted to discuss. One day as we were driving to Atlanta listening to Death Cab for Cutie’s Transatlanticism, it dawned upon us that this is one band we could all agree on and talk about with interest.

Although our band plays music much different than Death Cab, we’re all fans of their great song writing that is not only catchy, but also smart and loaded with intricacies that only true musicians would be able to provide to its audience. This band has managed to perfect this combination creating a sound entirely unique to their band, and we can’t get enough.

The Sound Of Settling

by Zack Zarrillo - Aug 18, 2014

Ian Cohen on looking ahead to Death Cab For Cutie's post–Chris Walla future:

Because it’s easy to imagine the typical narrator in Death Cab songs looking a hell of a lot like Ben Gibbard even if it isn’t Ben Gibbard, the singer isn’t granted the same kind of authorial distance given to most rappers or metal artists. As such, liking Death Cab can be seen as an endorsement of a certain kind of mind-set rather than an ability to relate to it; a Death Cab song almost invariably reminds you of a time when you made a lot of dumb romantic decisions because you didn’t really know any better and you see just how flawed your good intentions really are.
