Video Directed by Shepard Fairey

Watch: Death Cab for Cutie’s ‘Home Is A Fire’

May 09, 2011 Bookmark and Share


Acclaimed indie rockers Death Cab for Cutie decided to collaborate with famed graphic designer Shepard Fairey (you might remember him from those Obama "HOPE" posters floating around the country during the 2008 presidential campaign) on their video for single "Home Is A Fire." To accompany the slow building synth-led track are a ton of shaky shots, zooms, and pans of Los Angeles' gritty Eastside streets adorned with an eclectic collection of posters. Designed by Fairey, the posters are inscribed with various lyrics from the track. According to Boing Boing, the video's concept was dreamt up by Death Cab bassist Nick Harmer, who then reached out to Fairey, an admittedly long-time fan of the revered indie rock outfit. Considering the juxtaposition of street and art is Fairey's penchant, we think this partnership turned out pretty well.

Death Cab for Cutie's latest album, Codes and Keys, is due out May 31. Until then, indulge in "Home Is A Fire" below.
