ATP'S ROTY: #6 Death Cab For Cutie - Narrow Stairs

Today I am going to write about my 6th favourite Record of the Year and it comes from Washington Indie Rock four-piece Death Cab For Cutie.

"Narrow Stairs" is more or less the same Death Cab we have came to know and love after 6 albums with this being their 2nd major label release. The record contains all the usual elements; haunting lyrics, sweeping guitars and songs with multiple layers.

Nevertheless the record has both sombre and upifting songs, with highlights being the 8 and half minute long "I Will Posses Your Heart", as well as "No Sunlight" and "Grapevine Fires".

On the whole "Narrow Stairs" shows Death Cab For Cutie are a band who have emerged from the underground with a strong following and have remained to keep their feet on their ground and have not forgot their roots, as this record showcases a Indie Rock band with both Indie and Pop ideas.
