We all remember Seth Cohen of The OCâ€™s favourite band.
Death Cab for Cutie is still around in the music industry.
Many of us wonder how this band has kept itself relevant for so long.
Death Cab for Cutie has been a band thatâ€™s become one of the most established bands of the indie rock era. They have been around since 1998 and still sound refreshing now as they have before. They still have their musical magic touch and are able to keep their fans pleased. They are also able to capture that sound that is still related to the musical landscape of today.
Read how Death Cab for Cutie continues to prevail.
Led by Ben Gibbard since its inception in 1998, Death Cab for Cutie is one of the defining bands of the indie rock era.
Hereâ€™s a breakdown of the essential Death Cab for Cutie to polish up your ears ahead of the show and illustrate what it takes to be one of the most relevant rock bands of the past 15 years.
â€œThe Photo Albumâ€ (2001): Death Cab for Cutieâ€™s third LP, â€œThe Photo Albumâ€ (Barsuk Records), was the first real indicator that this was a great band in the making. With a more polished sound than the first two albums, Gibbard began to establish himself as a poetic songwriter with a dexterous lyrical side.
â€œTransatlanticismâ€ (2003): Indie-rock fans are as possessive of this album as they are of fellow Washingtonian indie rock deity Modest Mouseâ€™s â€œThe Lonesome Crowded West.â€

â€œPlansâ€ (2005): â€œPlansâ€ is easily the most accessible Death Cab for Cutie offering. The groupâ€™s major-label debut went platinum and featured the defining moment of Ben Gibbardâ€™s songwriting career, the single â€œSoul Meets Body.â€
It highlights an album filled with bright and unpredictable imagery. â€œI Will Follow You Into the Darkâ€ became the signature sing-along at concerts, and â€œPlansâ€ elevated the band from indie darlings to a force within the mainstream.
â€œNarrow Stairsâ€ (2008): No other Death Cab for Cutie album comes alive on stage quite like â€œNarrow Stairs.â€
â€œKintsugiâ€ (2015): For a band thatâ€™s been able to remain relevant for so long, capturing a sound that would play in todayâ€™s musical landscape was essential, and â€œKintsugiâ€ does just that.
From the reflective themes, guitar hook and electronic elements of single â€œBlack Sunâ€ to the happy-go-lucky vibe of â€œThe Ghosts of Beverly Driveâ€ that weâ€™ve come to expect somewhere on a Death Cab for Cutie album, itâ€™s a charming addition to the bandâ€™s discography and shows that thereâ€™s still gas in the tank for Gibbard and company.
