New Music Monday: Little Wanderer – Death Cab for Cutie

Today Death Cab released their fourth single from their upcoming album Kintsugi [pre-order here] , due out March 31st on Atlantic Records. The track is called “Little Wanderer” and it’s a sweet yet sad account of being in love with someone who is far away. Benjamin Gibbard is such a great story teller. When I closed my eyes and listened to this song I could see the story play out on the inside of my eyelids. Poor Ben having trouble with network connections and opposite sleeping schedules trying to stay in touch with his “little wanderer” who is away on a grand adventure while he stays home, being quietly supportive, and waits for her “but someone’s gotta be the lighthouse and that someone’s gotta be me”.  So many movies come to mind: Going the Distance, Like Crazy, and Boys & Girls. And in most of these movies there’s almost always resentment which isn’t so present in this song when he sings “you’re my little wanderer, won’t you wander back to me” and “standing tall on your horizon, guiding you home to me” who knew Death Cab could be so romantic?

With the closing line “when our eyes meet passed security, we embrace in the baggage claim, when we kiss in the baggage claim” I cant help but think of the iconic end scene of Garden State…

Garden-State

“Little Wanderer” is my second favorite thus far from the new album which I never thought I’d say after hearing “No Room in Frame” wand “Black Sun which are both incredible too. Now that I’ve rambled it’s time for YOU to listen to the track and see how you feel about it. Check it out below and I hope all my fellow music lovers out there have a great Monday!
