Broken Bells - "After The Disco"

Broken Bells, the collaboration between Brian Burton (Danger Mouse, Gnarls Barkley) and James Mercer of The Shins are set to release their highly-anticipated sophomore album, After The Disco via Columbia Records.  Alongside their catchy and cosmic 60’s inspired space-pop, the duo has added touches of disco on the soaring, danceable title track, “After the Disco” and Bee Gee’s like vocals on the infectious first single, “Holding On For Life” without losing the original essence of their unique project.  Other standouts include “Leave It Alone” which is built upon a psychedelic atmosphere of cyclical acoustic guitars, droning synths, and Mercer’s soulful croon and the trippy “Lazy Wonderland”; full of warbled and elastic synths and guitars with a bouncy rhythm, loping bass line and swirling vocal melody. 
Fans of the band will be glad that Mercer and Burton have not only continued with this band but have taken it to the next level.
