Death Cab For Cutie - You Are A Tourist

Today sees the release of Death Cab's first single from their upcoming album 'Codes and Keys' (out May 31st). The track is 'You Are a Tourist', and sounds on the first couple of listens like classic DC -  rumbling bass lines and an infectious guitar riff along with some solid vocals by Mr Gibbard.

With this being said, it doesn't have the 'wow' factor I was hoping for, being that it's pretty much the first new song the band have released since 2008's 'Narrow Stairs' (apart from 'Meet Me at the Equinox', and as it was on the Twilight soundtrack it is void). In my view, this is not as strong a lead single as Narrow Stairs': 'I Will Posses Your Heart'. A simply brilliant track, with a disturbing theme of lust an obsession.

Listen to the below, and let me know what you think.
