Holding On For Life – Broken Bells (Single)
Broken Bells are a super group consisting of vocalist & guitarist James Mercer from the group The Shins and Brian Burton (you may be more familiar with his stage name Danger Mouse ( half of the duo Gnarls Berkley with CeeLo Green or in demand producer who has twiddled thr knobs for Beck, Gorillaz, Norah Jones and is rumoured to be working on U2’s much anticipated album).
Holding On For Life is the lead off track from the forthcoming album titled After The Disco which is scheduled for the end of January 2014 which is the follow up to 2010 self titled album Broken Bells.
Holding On For Life is a mellow slice of psychedelic Americana with an addictive chorus sounding like a butched up Scissor Sisters track crossed with the Bee Gees. Burton’s production is crisp and Mercer’s falsetto is mesmerising.
