News Flashes 01.17.22: Death Cab’s Visualizer, Beach Weather’s Album, and Marianas Trench Gives Back

Today we talk about Death Cab for Cutie’s new visualizer, Beach Weather’s debut album, and Mariana Trench’s charity concert.

Death Cab’s Pepper Comes to Life

Even during their busy schedule, Death Cab for Cutie has managed to release a visualizer for their song “Pepper”. Teaming up with Frequent Visual and Juliet Bryant, they’ve created a tale straight out of the storybook of your dreams. During this piece of art, you feel like life is coming off of pages for a story of the lost love you’re longing for. It perfectly matches Ben Gibbard‘s solemn voice and the band’s melancholy sound.

Death Cab is still touring throughout the States until the end of February. Then they’ll head out to their European leg of the tour. Not to mention this fall they’ll kick off their highly anticipated tour with The Postal Service. Tickets have just about totally sold out but check to see if you can still snag some right here and watch “Pepper ” below!
