From what we've heard so far, it seems Death Cab For Cutie's forthcoming Codes And Keys will be a very diverse collection of songs. Taking into account the indie rock jam “You Are A Tourist,” the Postal Service-esque “Home Is A Fire,” and now the most recent track, “Some Boys,” Codes And Keys is home to all sorts of styles.
Not the signature Death Cab m.o. but pretty groovy nonetheless, “Some Boys” has a touch of that distorted/lo-fi tinge attached to frontman Ben Gibbard's vocals, backed with bad ass drum patterns, rapid piano chords and heavy bass riffs. Codes And Keys drops May 31st on Atlantic; check out “Some Boys” below:
