“Dead Alive” is the indie rock band’s first original song in over two years. Although Mercer has been busy with Broken Bells, his project with Danger Mouse, this breezy new single and its accompanying B-horror movie music video is the first real sign that the new Shins’ album that Mercer has been hinting at is indeed not a trick.
