Gibbard never does catch up with the globe-trotting redhead who stars in this video for Narrow Stairs’ stalker anthem. Not in person, anyway. DCFC tell the jammy, eight and half minute tale in a chilly warehouse, while the object of Ben’s affection rides trains looking pensive. Little does she know Ben’s winning her over in his mind! It’s long and dark (that’s what she said) and we still hate Ben’s glasses. But we dig the band’s creepy new sound.
Narrow Stairs is out 5/13 on Atlantic. Just Jazzin’ is out never.
