Death Cab For Cutie - I Will Follow You Into The Dark

Death Cab For Cutie - I Will Follow You Into The Dark

Firstly, I'd just like to say thanks to Kev for pushing me back into getting this site moving again and for his great contributions so far (and to the many yet to come).

Obviously, since I last posted on here over two years ago I've listened to a lot of great new music. On my travels there's one band that I've fallen in love with and come back to time and again.

It was Death Cab for Cutie's album "Narrow Stairs" that first caught my attention - notably "I Will Posses Your Heart" with Benjamin Gibbard's lush vocals sat atop an endless driving rhythm. The production is just so spacious, a sprinkling of piano dotted throughout. And his lyrics on the album - "she holds a smile, like someone would hold a crying child", brilliant.

I've decided to upload an entirely different track from an entirely different album. I Will Follow You Into The Dark is from the older "Plans". To be honest it's not really representative of their sound. In fact it was just an unplanned, almost accidental, recording during technical difficulty downtime at the studio. It's Death Cab at their sweetest.


3 minutes of perfection

what a genuinely beautiful way to spend 3 minutes of your life. If you're going to play a song while seated around a campfire on the beach this summer, make it this one.

re: getting the site moving again, it's an honour to serve, Sir.
