Late Night Music with Frank- Death Cab for Cutie
Death Cab for Cutie is hard to hate. Their latest release's disappointed, however "Narrow Stairs" did have a few gems this track being one of them. It doesn't help their cause now that lead singer/songwriter Ben Gibbard is marrying the ever amazing Zoey Deschanel; a stab to every emo kid's heart. This song portrays Gibbard's experience with the California wildfires just two years ago and is featured on the Change is Now- Renewing America's Promise compilation.
Walter Robot was provoked to create the new Death Cab video for “Grapevine Fires” after the song was included on the official commemorative CD/DVD set Change is Now: Restoring America’s Promise, which celebrates the historic inauguration of President Obama. Inspired by DCFC front man Ben Gibbard and his experience with the infamously dangerous California wildfires two years ago, Robot managed to portray the devastating event through his unique style of animation, but was sill able to capture the sincere optimistic undertones of Gibbard’s lyrics throughout the video.
Robot has been praised for his work with on various projects including collaborations with Modest Mouse and Gnarls Barkley, and was even featured at the Sundance Film Festival, so it is no wonder that the merge of the two talented forces created an ingenious piece of work.
Enjoy your evening! Chow!
