My crush on James Mercer and The Shins came circuitously via Broken Bells and my unrequited longing for Danger Mouse. I saw them put on an amazing performance at Terminal Five. My crush on all things Danger and Mercer was sealed.
The recently-released single ‘Simple Song’ from The Shins new album Port of Morrow (available March 20th), vibes the 70s and 80s, channelling The Who and Jackson Brown, and more contemporarily, Band of Horses.
Can’t wait for the rest to be unveiled.
