On May 31st, Death Cab For Cutie are back with their 7th full length album, Codes and Keys. Death Cab have been around for a long time, and one word I can associate with them is consistency. Every single album they have released is outstanding in its own personal way.
When I was in highschool, there was a period of time where 3-4 times a week during morning spare a couple buddies and I would go bowling. What started out as a joke turned into a bit of a nickname. My bowling name was Death Cab and I embraced it.
Death Cab For Cutie make music that draws an emotional response. Through catchy melodies and heartfelt lyrics, it is hard to not like what you hear. Their new song, You Are A Tourist is no different.
There is a specific line in this song that hit me and made me realize just how much I love Death Cab.
And if you feel just like a tourist in the city you were born, it’s time to go.
