About a month ago, we heard brand new music from Death Cab For Cutie, which is preparing to release its first album sans Chris Walla at the end of March. This week, a second single from the album, Kintsugi, emerged. No Room In Frame is its name.
Unlike Black Sun, that first track released in January, No Room In Frame is bouncy little pop tune, although the lyrics are a little sad. It’s a break up song of sorts. Whether it also refers to Walla is up to your interpretation. Mentions of cameras, and standing in someone’s way suggest it might be.
With twinkles of electronics, some tasty guitar work and wonderful production, it’s another big reason to get excited about the release of the full album. Not long now, folks.
Here’s an acoustic version of Black Sun, just for kicks, which is probably how Ben Gibbard brought it to the band. Beautiful.
