Death Cab For Cutie - Different Names For The Same Thing (Song)
  • I should mention that thus far the song has maintained a very constant mood and seeing that the length is five minutes long, the band will certainly have to do something about this to keep it interesting
  • As the drums progressively become more prominent in the mix, the track definitely takes on a much different feel than throughout the first half which I personally like

      Different Names For The Same Thing is a song by Death Cab For Cutie which appears on their record Plans. The song opens up with a piano-led introduction which then gives way to the vocal performance which seems to have some effect on it which makes it seem slightly distant yet somehow also pretty personal.

      The past few Death Cab For Cutie songs I’ve reviewed primarily relied on typical instrumentation, so it’s nice to hear a change and


      focus on a piano throughout this particular track.

      As the track progresses on, the vocals seem to take on a more upfront delivery which is something that seems to occur often in songs by Death Cab For Cutie.

      I personally like tracks that get better as they go on and this is no exception.

        Thankfully, at around the two minute mark the piano drops out and some other instrumentation joins in to create a pretty free atmosphere which leaves me curious for what will come next in the track.

        As the drums progressively become more prominent in the mix, the track definitely takes on a much different feel than throughout the first half which I personally like.

        The vocals soon

        come back in with the same lyrics as were present throughout the part of the song with the piano so this further serves to contrast the two sides of this song with common vocal lyrics and deliveries uniting the two sides of the track.

        The track continues on in this fashion until the end of the song and I must say I’m glad Death Cab seemed to break the song into two halves which demonstrates their diversity in terms of songwriting.
