Hold on to your hearts.
After more than a decade, Grammy-nominated indie rock darlings Death Cab for Cutie return to Esplanade for a one-night-only concert, performing familiar favourites and hits from their latest album Thank You For Today.
Thursday, 25 July 2019 - 8pm @Esplanade Theatre
Thank You for Today is the sound of Death Cab for Cutie both expanding and refining; a band 20 years into its evolution, still uncovering new curves in its signatures, new sonic corners to explore. Beautiful and dynamic, and darkly anthemic and bittersweet, Death Cab frontman Ben Gibbard weaves a thread throughout about how interconnected geography is with memory, and how hard it can be to hold onto places, and to people too.
Rising from a side project and becoming one of the most exciting groups to emerge from the indie rock scene in the 2000s, the band has been nominated for eight Grammy Awards, including for Best Rock Album for their 2015 album Kintsugi.
“Death Cab for Cutie get reborn with Thank You For Today”
“Comforting alt-rock melancholia”
“For a band in its third decade… Death Cab hasn't lost its gift for pairing Gibbard's soft ruminations with propulsive arrangements that know just when to sparkle and sway.”
