American Alt-Rock/Emo/Indie Pop/Rock (seriously is there any genre this group hasn’t covered?) group Death Cab For Cutie premiered their lyric video for new single “Black Sun” which is off of their first album Kintsugi since both 2011’s Codes and Keys, and the departure of bandmate Chris Walla (although apparently he was still involved in the making of the record).
Last week in a concert in Seattle, Death Cab premiered three new songs from their March 31 anticipated LP without Walla, and have only just released “Black Sun” officially for streaming. The song sounds like classic Death Cab with its overtly morose yet beautiful lyrics, however the impact of losing a band member is obvious and a new sound is present. I have high hopes for the rest of the album. You can see the lyric video for the surprisingly electronic song here.
