Music Monday: Broken Bells

Broken Bells is the musical duo of Brian Burton (better known as Danger Mouse) and The Shins frontman James Mercer. They describe their music as “melodic, yet experimental” with Mercer’s distinctively earnest and melancholy voice given buoyancy by Danger Mouse’s catchy beats and sparkling arrangements. Broken Bells has just one self-titled album that just came out on March 9, 2010, and it is definitely worth your time to give these songs a listen!

Here’s a sweet video for “The Ghost Inside”:

Check out their debut single, “The High Road”:

Check out the Broken Bells website for tour dates, pictures, and an amazing interactive music video for another great song called “October”.
