Death Cab For Cutie have been aging like a fine wine or a smelly cheese with the last couple of years producing their two finest albums; 2005’s Plans and 2008’s Narrow Stairs. Death Cab have become a band who encompass “all killer and no filler”, giving their fans albums chocked-full of great songs, all without one duff track in sight. Needless to be said, this year’s release comes with a large dose of anticipation. Luckily, most of what we’ve heard from Codes And Keys has been promising, especially the song ‘Home Is A Fire’, which you can now watch the video for underneath.
The track certainly possesses something of the Postal Service about it with its glitch electronic beats and once again reaffirms Death Cab’s exquisite talent for great song-writing, whilst constantly challenging themselves. The video is by Shepard Fairey and Nicholas Harmer, whilst Codes And Keys will be released on May 30th courtesy of Atlantic Records.
