I’m not like a 90-mph fastball kind of guy, but I can hit 70 on radar gun. I hit 70 one time on a radar guy at one of those pitch-and-throw kind of things. I have a pretty good arm for somebody who’s not a baseball player.Ben Gibbard
I always try to write the best song I can in the moment, and those songs are often going to end up on Death Cab for Cutie records. I don’t set out to write a solo song or write a band song. I just write, and where that songs ends up is kind of TBD.Ben Gibbard
I think a very clear cut example of – dare I say – plagiarism is the Sam Smith-Tom Petty situation, where you have a song that is flagrantly… it is the hook from one song being used for another song. To me, that was a very obvious example of plagiarism. If somebody had done that to me, I would probably take a similar course of action.Ben Gibbard
Death Cab always gets right of first refusal on everything I write, but I tend to know early on. There’s a song that has yet to be released – it might come to light at some point in the near future – that when I was writing it, I was really proud of it lyrically.Ben Gibbard
For ‘Narrow Stairs’, the majority of the songs I brought in were guitar songs – songs we could sit in a room and just play. I can honestly say I had more fun and felt more inspired on this record than anything that we had done in a long time.Ben Gibbard
