When you mix the sound of New Order, The Cure, The Smiths, Alphaville, and Joy Division, the result is pure magic. This is the case with “Northern Lights” by Death Cab For Cutie. On their new album, “Thank You For Today”, the band reinvigorated themselves and they sound incredible!
“Northern Lights” will most likely be my song of the year. It captures everything I loved about the other bands and shows how adaptable Death Cab is to bring that sound into the 21st Century. Heck, at this point, it could wind up being my song of the decade. When I replay it about 50 times in a row and don’t get sick of it, I know it’s a keeper!
This blog has been on the heavy side and going on all cylinders lately so I thought it would be good to get something a little uplifting out there, even if it is just a song!
