Broken Bells: Bringing the brilliance

Bootleg Theatre, Los Angeles Feb 2010
(CC) Andy Sternberg -
Band: Broken Bells
Origin: Los Angeles, California, US
Genre: Indie rock

Formed in 2009, Broken Bells has already played Glastonbury and is planning its second album. This is not surprising considering that the band consists of musical marvels James Mercer from The Shins on vocals and guitar, and Brian Burton – better known as Danger Mouse – covering multiple instruments and production.
Described by the duo as “melodic, but experimental, too”, their sound is a perfect amalgamation of the two gentlemen’s separate brilliances. Broken Bells are brilliant. Expect big things!

Debut album: Broken Bells [March 2010]
EP: Meyrin Fields [March 2011]

Resembles: Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, The Shins, Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse, Fleet Foxes
