Death Cab For Cutie Streaming OneTake Video Shoot Live on Web

first_imgSure Ben Gibbard has done his time in the Postal Service, but the singer wants the world to know that he’s also down with the latest technologies. For his latest trick, Gibbard’s band Death Cab for Cutie will be shooting a one-take video to promote its new single “You Are a Tourist”–a single take that will be live streamed on the Web. Gibbard told MTV, It’s kind of hard to describe because it’s kind of like … I liken it to a five-year-old trying to explain their trip to Disneyland. It’s sensory overload, so there’s a lot of things happening, and trying to kind of walk anybody through it would be very difficult. But there are lights and dancers, and smoke and projections, and it’s gonna be kind of a little bit of a Busby Berkeley-type of spectacle. The shoot will reportedly involve complex choreography and a slew of actors and dancers. There will also be some serious live electronic effects involved, including projections of cityscapes and designs in sync with the music.The band is currently practicing the video, which will be shot tonight at 7PM ET.
