Watch: Broken Bells Perform New Song “The Changing Lights”

Broken Bells stopped by La Blogotheque’s “Take Away Show” to perform nothing something old, something new, nothing borrowed, but both will make fans feel less blue.

If there is one band out there right now that deserves your attention, it has to be Maker.
