Death Cab for Cutie: Music meets Design

It’s been 3 years since the majestic album “Plans” and Death Cab for Cutie have finally released their new album called “Narrow Stairs”. The first single comes with a beautiful 8 minute long video. “I will possess your Heart” has the kind of melody you can lose yourself in. Have a look/listen for yourself. DCfC really manage to make a bond between design music and design. Their website has a lovely retro feeling and the new album cover is pure genius. Not to forget their concert posters (including works of Jason Munn). I’m off buying Narrow Stairs.
