Splendour Sideshow Review: Death Cab For Cutie - HQ, Adelaide (03.08.15)

I last saw Death Cab For Cutie play HQ in 2012 and it was the first time I'd seen a crowd of 20 somethings - both men and women - react so intensely, revelling in nostalgia, melancholy and an emotional tornado swept up by the band's excellent delivery of lovelorn rock tunes. Fast forward to 2015 and we're back in the same venue but nothing much else has changed - the fans and the band have gotten a few years older but we're all wanting that same experience.

Live Review: Death Cab For Cutie - The Sydney Opera House, Sydney (01.08.15)

You would be inclined to think that seeing your favourite band live would automatically equate to an amazing experience. Sadly, the last time I saw Death Cab For Cutie at The Enmore Theatre two years ago, I was underwhelmed to say the least; perhaps it was the heartbreak from Gibbard’s recent divorce, perhaps he just didn’t give a damn. While the songs were delivered note-perfect, the unavoidable truth came in the form of the realisation that there’s more to a gig than just the pitch of a performance – there also needs to be soul and charisma.

Album Review: Holy Pinto - Stenography (2015 EP)

British band, Holy Pinto provides a varying amount of musical influences. From the quirkiness of Say Anything to the poetic words of Death Cab For Cutie, this two-piece are the game changer of indie music. With their latest offering of Stenography, it is a short and sweet summation of their sharpness and attitude in their musicianship. Many will delight in this three-song sampler and you'll feel less of a freak knowing that it's possible that a band like this exist and that's pretty fucking cool.

Death Cab for Cutie announce Australian tour dates for July & August!

Already announced on the huge line up for Splendour in the Grass, Death Cab For Cutie have today unveiled details of a wider Australian tour for July and August! It's been a few years since the Washington heatstring pullers were in the country in a headline capacity but with their new album Kintsugi already doing good things in this part of the world, it'd be criminal for them to come to Australia for a trip that'd only see them do the festival and one or two sideshows.

the AU interview: Nick Harmer of Death Cab For Cutie (USA) tells all about "Kintsugi" and songwriting process

Having a strong catalogue of albums and reigning success in the indie/alternative rock scene, Death Cab For Cutie are clearly great at what they do. With their eighth studio album, Kintsugi just released, we chat to bassist player, Nick Harmer about the meaning of the term “Kintsugi”, the details behind Chris Walla's departure and how the band have evolved using both experimentation and consistency in their music.

Album Review: Death Cab For Cutie - Kintsugi (2015 LP)

The term Kintsugi is a beautiful one (the Japanese word for the art of mending broken pottery) and as the title of Death Cab For Cutie's eighth studio album it's a good indication of where the band stands in both sadness and heartache. 2011’s Codes and Keys, brought an upbeat indie rock style but now, since the many changes over the last year, the band have officially translated all their feelings about everything that's happened in one record.
