Having been featured before, it’s not a secret I enjoy the music Death Cab for Cutie puts out. This track, which is taken from their upcoming album Kintsugi, is my favorite so far of the singles that they have released leading up to the new album. Apart from what usually makes a track by Death Cab for Cutie great, such as captivating lyrics and thoughtful instrumentation, this has a few interesting quirks added throughout that I find functions as the cherry on top of an already great track.
It may have an intro that’s slightly longer than 4 minutes and 30 seconds, but that’s part of the reason why I love this track. There is, of course, a radio edit, but without the full instrumental section I feel this track loses some of its appeal.
