Broken Bells

Broken Bells is an American indie rock band composed of artist-producer Brian Burton (better known as Danger Mouse) and James Mercer, the lead vocalist and guitarist for the indie rock band The Shins. Broken Bells compose and create as a duo, but are joined by a full band on tour. The live band included Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band sidemen Nate Walcott and Nik Freitas, and Jonathan Hischke and Dan Elkan, both ex-members of Hella. Following the success of their first self-titled album, Broken Bells, Mercer and Burton announced intentions to record a follow-up, and released a new EP, Meyrin Fields, on March 29, 2011. more »

 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

And what you found was gold
As black as dried blood
The taste was so, so sweet
And one loves to love

The whole idea seems unfair to all
But it's always that way

So circles, crowds take in
Coincidental sun
And careful hands tie their knots
And you're dumb to be done

No, I'm not desolate enough
And heartless empire from
Where to end it

Those who search search by themselves
Leaving nothing to gain
Cast like stones into the night
We're all one and the same
