Watch This Now: Death Cab for Cutie – “You Are a Tourist”

“If you feel just like a tourist in the city you were born, then it’s time to go… “

Hey gang! Busy, busy week here on the blog – going to endeavour to pick up the slack from weeks prior and give as much effort as I can to this here blog. We’re going to kick off with an amazing new effort from one of my favourite bands ever. Death Cab for Cutie have a new album out next month, entitled Codes and Keys. It’s the longest time we’ve had to wait for a new DCfC record ever – the last album, Narrow Stairs, came in 2008. If what we’ve got here is anything to go by, however, then we’re in for another classic from the band.

This is a very special video for the band, as they’ve managed to pull together quite a brilliant concept. This, for all intents and purposes, is a live video – it was done in one take, with no edits or overdubs. Everything you see in that five minutes happened all in the one go. The lights, the dancing, the choreography, the works. Pretty damn cool, no?

It premiered live and as it was happening a couple of weeks ago, but the band have finally released the take as the official video. I’m completely in love with it – they’ve nailed this one out of the park. Take a look below and see if you can wholly appreciate the effort that’s gone into this. There’s a good chance we’re not gonna see another video quite like it this year.
