Broken Bells – “After The Disco”

By Tom Breihan / January 7, 2014 - 2:39 pm

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.
