Broken Bells - "After The Disco"

Broken Bells, the duo of Danger Mouse and Shins frontman James Mercer, are close to releasing their new album After The Disco, and we posted the LP’s first single “Holding On For Life” a while back. The duo has now shared the album’s title track, and it’s a light, lithe pop groove — one not too far removed from Hall & Oates, or maybe Chromeo. I can’t hear it without attempting to imagine what kind of commercials the song will eventually soundtrack, but that probably says as much about me as it does about the track. Listen below.

After The Disco is out 2/4 via Columbia.

  1. i love james mercer and he loves me

  2. Color me disappointed that it’s coming out 2/4 and not 1/4, as previously rumored. Both songs that I’ve heard so far have been absolutely groovy

  3. Is anyone else reminded of “Get Lucky” at the beginning of the song?

  4. Look out world, Broken Bells are back. Can’t stop watching “Holding On For Life.”
