The High Road – Broken Bells

I found this song via the free SXSW sampler available on NPR. Pretty much if I see “free” I take it. It’s free after all.

I really like the strange video game like sounds throughout the song. It really seems to contrast with the vocals which sound a little more low-fi and the piano sounds. It’s like a great cacophony of sound. Which really kind of lends to the emotion in the sound.

The lyrics are awesome:

Cause they know, and so do I
The high road is hard to find
A detour to your new life
Tell all of your friends goodbye

It’s too late to change your mind
You let laws be your guide
