Featuring two of the bigger names in indie and alternative music — the Shins’ singer/guitarist James Mercer and producer/multi-instrumentalist Brian Burton, aka Danger Mouse — Broken Bells combined the pair’s greatest strengths. On 2010’s Grammy-nominated self-titled debut and 2014’s more structured After the Disco, Mercer’s gift for indelible, slightly spooky melodies and Burton’s atmospheric productions complemented each other perfectly. In the late 2010s, the duo reconvened to release a succession of singles ahead of their third album.
With the 2022 release of the moody “We’re Not in Orbit Yet…” the pair announced the impending release of their third album, Into the Blue.
Available in CD, LP and Indie Exclusive Opaque Purple Vinyl LP formats.
