“Roman Candles” – Death Cab For Cutie (cover)

When I heard this song earlier this year I was so transfixed I had to play it over and over and over (and over) again…that doesn’t happen often to me these days, but the lyrics stopped me in my tracks. I feel them so much.


➡️ Death Cab For Cutie’s new album “Asphalt Meadows” is out now and they have a great YouTube channel.

➡️ This is a live one take performance with additional vocal harmonies added afterwards. This time I experimented recording the audio using the Rode Video Mic Pro + and added some reverb in Logic Pro.

➡️ Watch more from my “Take a sad song and make it sadder” covers series.

✅ FUN FACT: one of the reasons I’m called Penfriend is down to loving The Postal Service’s album “Give Up”. Dream collab!!!
