Watch: Frightened Rabbit Cover Death Cab For Cutie
Death Cab For Cutie‘s current tourmates Frightened Rabbit recently recorded a cover of Death Cab For Cuties‘ “Different Names for the Same Thing“.
The band recorded the track, which is off DCFC‘s 2005 album ‘Plans‘, alongside a river at the recent Osheaga festival outside Montreal.
The group covered the track for Invisible Children, a non-profit organization that works toward bringing peace to Northern Uganda, and a charity supported by both Death Cab For Cutie and Frightened Rabbit.
Speaking to Spin Magazine about the cover, Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison said “I almost tried to ‘countrify’ the song, as it has such a strong beautiful melody. It’s a very simple song at its core, so I just stuck with that basic structure and let it be plaintive and sad.”
