Death Cab for Cutie

Death Cab for Cutie was created in only 1997 though they have the sound of a much older polished band. They were named after a 1967 song by  the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.  They started as a small little known band from Washington state, and produced their music through Barsuk Records.

Then in 2004 they signed a deal with the large Atlantic records, and their fame continued to grow. Their music can be found all over in soundtracks, including their new song “Meet Me on the Equinox” which is one of the main singles for the movie New Moon.

Death Cab has a very unique sound that is entirely their own, but not everyone likes it. Many of my friends for some reason seem to hate them with a deep loathing that I cannot understand. Another interesting thing is that the a new band called Owl City seems to have taken the same musical approach as Death Cab, in fact they sound very similar.
