Broken Bells on Conan

Broken Bells are in California and between Coachella weekends, and amazingly enough, Danger Mouse is not using the moment to produce another kinda-flat album for another arena-rock band. Instead, he and James Mercer appeared on last night’s episode of Conan, performing “Control,” an icy early-’80s-style rocker from their new album After The Disco. Their stage setup, with all those circular platforms, is a pretty cool piece of design, though I’m not sure it makes up for the glaring lack of stage presence. Check out the performance below.

After The Disco is out now on Columbia.
