Death Cab for Cutie: I Will Possess Your Heart

Death Cab for Cutie holds the rare title of a band that comes from the indie scene with a platinum album and a Grammy nomination. However, upon closer analyzation of the band and their music it is not that farfetched as it sounds. The band has connected with fans by combining pop melody, Ben Gibbard’s boy next door persona, heartfelt lyrics and indie sensibilities. Three years after the bands critical acclaimed “Plans”, the group is a bit older, a little more seasoned and seemingly a little more cynical. The new album “Narrow Stairs” takes a darker, moodier turn then their past efforts but still relies heavily on the literary whisper heavy style of Gibbard that initially gave the band its charm. The first single “I Will Posses Your Heart” clocks in at over eight minutes and contains a lengthy instrumental introduction. The song selection for a video and radio song seems more like a band attempting to redefine their sound rather than one easing into the comfort zone of rock veterans. However, the decision to make the song the first single is a reminder that the group though signed to a major record label still holds to its independent roots. Musically the song is a soundtrack to a longing heart filled with lyrics of longing and despair over the bands standard down tempo guitar blare and lightly played keyboard sound.
