Today’s song is Death Cab For Cutie’s “Underneath The Sycamore”. It is off of their most recent album, ‘Codes and Keys’, which is also arguably their best effort. A skipping drum beat anchors the song, while their wispy/poppy vocal styling floats above the ebb-and-flowing bass and guitar lines. A simple message of “We are the same, we are all the same, underneath the Sycamore”, is repeated often, and don’t be surprised if it’s stuck in your head as well.
It’s Death Cab at their best. The lyrics and message aren’t transparent, but are reflective and inward-feeling nonetheless. It’s nothing over the top, but will make you want to tap your toes.
Happy Saturday everyone.Underneath The Sycamore by ATL REC
