Death Cab For Cutie – Kintsugi
Producer – Rich Costey
There is something about the way Death Cab for Cutie writes songs about relationships. They just seem so much more real and heartfelt than anything else I have ever heard.
If you are looking for a song to sum up your relationships past or present look no further than the Death Cab catalogue. If you are looking for songs about your breakups and despair then focus on Kintsugi. This is easily the best collection of breakup songs I have ever experienced. Songs like “You’ve Haunted Me All My Life” and “Black Sun” are chillingly beautiful.
Be sure to check out the podcast Song Exploder that features an episode that digs deep into the making of the song “El Dorado.”
