Broken Bells‘ forthcoming EP, Meyrin Fields, includes two previously unreleased songs, and below, courtesy of NPR, you can stream the one entitled, “Windows”. Clocking in at 3:13, the tracks blends subterranean bass grooves, plucking guitar lines, and James Mercer’s best Damon Albarn/Anthony Kiedis impression, giving way to something that’s both psychedelic and wandering. You can’t help but imagine deserts on Mars, desolate terrain, or apocalyptic surrealism. It’s stark yet also delectably lush in areas. Whatever the case, it peaks our interest for the EP, nonetheless.
Meyrin Fields is available March 22nd (via Columbia). Choose your favorite configuration over at the band’s online store.
