deathcab_phixr.jpgAtlantic recording group Death Cab for Cutie has unveiled a must-see new video for “Grapevine Fires,” one of the stand-out tracks on their RIAA gold certified Grammy nominated “NARROW STAIRS.”  

The animated clip, directed by Walter Robot, a.k.a. the team of multimedia artist Bill Barminski and writer Christopher Louie can be viewed here:

“Grapevine Fires”


“Grapevine Fires” was initially inspired by DCFC vocalist/guitarist Ben Gibbard’s up-close-and-personal encounter with 2007’s California wildfires.   The song — which was recently included on “CHANGE IS NOW: RESTORING AMERICA’S PROMISE,” the official commemorative CD-DVD set celebrating President Barack Obama’s historic inauguration — motivated Walter Robot to create an animated short film which brilliantly relays the sense of devastating tragedy and forced optimism caused by the fire’s wrath.
