LISTEN: Broken Bells – ‘After The Disco’

Written by Greg Moskovitch on January 12, 2014

Spacey indie duo Broken Bells, composed of Brian Burton, known to fans as super-producer Danger Mouse, and James Mercer, frontman of indie rock heroes The Shins, have given fans the latest taste of their upcoming album, After The Disco, by unveiling the record’s title track as a single.

After The Disco is slated for release on Friday, 7th February, and has already yielded the single, Holding On For Life, whose unique, sci-fi-themed music video, directed by Jacob Gentry and written by Danger Mouse, combined footage from two short films produced by the band.

On After The Disco, the duo challenged themselves to make an album using vintage techniques and minimal instrumentation. “We like the idea of making a record that anybody could make,” Burton told Rolling Stone. “Doing something on a smaller scale, but making it sound really big.”
