James Mercer and Brian Burton of Broken Bells stopped by SiriusXM's studios this weekend to perform an acoustic rendition of their recent single "Holding on for Life." Check it out above.
In its stripped-down form, the song featured Burton playing a plaintive piano melody while Mercer's guitar and vocals remained nearly unchanged from the song's studio version. Stripped from Burton's fun, intriguing production touches, this rendition of "Holding on for Life" better showcased the song's not-exactly-fun lyrics.
Listen to the original version of "Holding on for Life," as well as a remix by Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner, right here on Zumic. For more on Broken Bells, including details about their upcoming album After The Disco, visit their Zumic artist page.
