Song: The High Road
Artist: Broken Bells
Album: Broken Bells
Genre: Indie Rock / Indie Pop
Notes: First single from 1st LP
Analysis: One of my favorite songs of 2010 so far has been ‘The High Road’, and the pseudo-apocalyptic music video is of an impressive quality for a side project. Broken Bells, for those unfamiliar, is an unexpected team-up of The Shins’ frontman James Mercer, and Gnarls Barkley producer Danger Mouse. And here they are walking said “high road”, almost like a surreal interpretation of that box office SMASH The Road!
