Death Cab For Cutie’s Newest Music Video: Grapevine Fires

4 03 2009

If you haven’t gathered already, I’m a huge fan of Death Cab for Cutie.  Last year, DCFC came out with Narrow Stairs, a lyrical triumph and a mark of genius–one of my favorite albums of all time. I didn’t think they could top themselves but I was wrong.  The music video of the hit off of Narrow Stairs, “Grapevine Fires” is chilling and poignant, and in character with DCFC style, it speaks to you on a higher level.

The video, according to Filter magazine, was inspired by vocalist Ben Gibbard’s own experience with California wildfires.
