After the Disco
We have less than a month left until we get to experience Broken Bells‘ sophomore effort, After The Disco, making its the perfect time to get our first listen of the album’s title track. “After The Disco” ironically borrows certain elements from that genre itself, which ultimately leads to a far more upbeat number than its predecessor, “Holding On For Life,” while keeping the same level of desperation through its lyrics. While we certainly love everything Brian Burton has done with the groovy production, it’s The Shins frontman who really shines on this track through his glimmering falsetto. It’s remarkable to think it’s been nearly four years since Danger Mouse and James Mercer’s first team-up, making the anticipation for their follow up that much more agonizing. The wait is finally over on February 4th, so get you pre-orders in as soon as possible.
