Biography

Brian Burton, a.k.a. Danger Mouse of Gnarls Barkley, has teamed up with James Mercer, who’s spent more than a decade leading his band The Shins, to form Broken Bells. They met six years ago at a music festival, but it wasn’t until last year that the artists had a chance to launch into a new endeavor. Their mesh of creative talents is evident in the debut album that NPR describes as “a smart pop record full of melody and invention. It’s pretty and at times unorthodox, and it finds both Burton and Mercer drawing on each other’s talents to make a record unique to each of them.”
