Grapevine Fires: A Daintily-Pretty Tale of Fiercely Smothered Love

Grapevine Fires: A Daintily-Pretty Tale of Fiercely Smothered Love

We’ve long been accustomed to bearing with the emo musical scene, based as it is, sometimes unfortunately, upon those deep, often over-sharing diary-like outpourings of personal emotions (or disturbed emotions). And I really can be just as sensitive as the next fellow to some of emo’s musical railings either about love or unrequited love. But jeeez, this latest thing by Benjamin Gibbard! The new music video put out by his band Death Cab for Cutie, the daintily-pretty Grapevine Fires, has to be one of the most disturbing animations to come out lately.

Grapevine Fires certainly does a darn good, smash-up job of smothering any feelings of romantic love that you just might have been harboring at the moment. Now, I won’t spoil it too much for you, since you might have been browsing the web for a trigger to swallow a fistful of prescription meds. But there’s a forest fire here that invades a smallish suburban town, and the fierce scene to which the encroaching blaze gives rise does not end nicely. Nope…not nicely at all.
