Death Cab for Cutie is an American indie rock band formed in Bellingham, Washington in 1997. The band consists of Benjamin Gibbard (vocals, guitar), Chris Walla (guitar, production), Nicholas Harmer (bass) and Jason McGerr (drums).

Gibbard took the band name from the title of the song written by Neil Innes and Vivian Stanshall and performed by their group the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band in The Beatles' 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour.

Wikipedia(Death Cab for Cutie,Musical style)
Death Cab for Cutie's early work on 'You Can Play These Songs with Chords'(originally released on cassette, and it proved so popular, Gibbard decided to recruit other members to make a full band, which would go on to record 'Something About Airplanes' ) was described by Rolling Stone as "emotion through its lack of emotion".
Rolling Stone reviewed 'Transatlanticism'(fourth studio album) and commented that it contained "melodic, melancholy songs about feeling both smart and confused, hopelessly romantic but wary of love."

Pitchfork Media also remarked that the work on the cassette was "ultra-lo-fi".
On 'Something About Airplanes'(debut studio album) the band's style remained similar, with some new instrumental work introduced; "flute, synth, or cello" were noted by Allmusic's Nitsuh Abebe.
On 'We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes'(second studio album) the band again expanded their use of unorthodox instruments, including organ and glockenspiel.

Pitchfork Media called them a "gentle niche" in the current rock climate, compared with bands such as Modest Mouse and Built to Spill.

Gibbard's voice was described as "plaintive boy-next-door" Entertainment Weekly commented on the music on 'Plans'(fifth studio album), saying "The lush arrangements are long on hothouse organs and pianos, but short on the squirmy guitars and squirrelly beats that, on Gibbard's best work, offset his sweet voice and borderline-maudlin poetics with a sense of emotional danger."

The band's music on Plans was described by the Dallas Morning News as "a literate, whispery style, the kind of stuff that normally sounds better in headphones than in large venues".
