StreeXB Global Talent SearchIndie band stays relevant in the music industry

We all remember Seth Cohen of The OC’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 that’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.

Here’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.

“The Photo Album” (2001): Death Cab for Cutie’s third LP, “The Photo Album” (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.

“Transatlanticism” (2003): Indie-rock fans are as possessive of this album as they are of fellow Washingtonian indie rock deity Modest Mouse’s “The Lonesome Crowded West.”


 


 

“Plans” (2005): “Plans” is easily the most accessible Death Cab for Cutie offering. The group’s major-label debut went platinum and featured the defining moment of Ben Gibbard’s songwriting career, the single “Soul Meets Body.”

It highlights an album filled with bright and unpredictable imagery. “I Will Follow You Into the Dark” became the signature sing-along at concerts, and “Plans” elevated the band from indie darlings to a force within the mainstream.

“Narrow Stairs” (2008): No other Death Cab for Cutie album comes alive on stage quite like “Narrow Stairs.”

“Kintsugi” (2015): For a band that’s been able to remain relevant for so long, capturing a sound that would play in today’s musical landscape was essential, and “Kintsugi” does just that.

From the reflective themes, guitar hook and electronic elements of single “Black Sun” to the happy-go-lucky vibe of “The Ghosts of Beverly Drive” that we’ve come to expect somewhere on a Death Cab for Cutie album, it’s a charming addition to the band’s discography and shows that there’s still gas in the tank for Gibbard and company.
