Very Iron & Wine meets The Little Mermaid's "Kiss the Girl." Needs more dynamics. Ben Gibbard sounds like he's singing on the low end of his range. Bring it up a major third or even a fifth and this could've been a lot better I think.
This is one of those bad ideas that someone reinforced and now it’s somehow made it all the way to late night tv, and it’s honestly making me cringe. As a lifelong death cab fan I hate to see them release this snooze of a single. It sounds…bad
I love how hardcore fans complain that since Chris Walla has left the band the music sounds lousy, yet these same people complained about Plans, Narrow Stairs, Codes and Keyes, and Kintsugi not sounding like the older records. Please 🙄
Hi Stevie, This song is definitely not their best but I’m reminded of the name that reminds Me of Me when I took that 🚕 from the farmhouse to M& & Saw My life flash before Me when I realized that was what the 🚕 was. Still alive & kickin’ tho! See U Soon!
Man I wish Death Cab would play in tiny venues like this indefinitely. I've seen them in an arena and it was absolutely the worst concert experience I've ever had. Meanwhile I've also seen them in venues a little larger than the Ed Sullivan Theatre, and they sounded impeccable.
As a long time DCfC fan this is just not working for me, I'm sorry. A low energy blob of a song with no memorable melody, hook or character at all… Basically a blank canvas. I really hope the rest of the album will turn out differently.
Wow there sure are a lot of haters on this one, seriously if you don't like it just fuck off and find something you do like. I personally think this song is honest, and his vocals not being so high makes it sound super chill to me, not to mention he's getting older and trying to max out your vocal range HAS to get more difficult with time.
I really enjoy the honesty and reality coming through the lyrics of kintsugi, and this song. Not the most energetic death cab to date, but that certainly doesn't make it bad.
