Wild Belle is based out of the hustle and cuss of Chi-Town, (Chicago, IL). Siblings Natalie and Elliot Bergman combine their musical aspirations to bring a type of progressive, reggae, sit-down-and-stay-awhile style of alternative hooks. Throughout the last year, Natalie, lead vocalist, and Elliot, keyboards and saxophone, have taken their knack for the mellow face of rock and roll far outside the skyline walls of Chicago, and crept into a brief cultural enlightenment across the globe as they prepare for their major music scene debut.
Their first single and official video, “Keep You,” from their full length release Isles, (2013), was released via Rollingstone.com this past Tuesday, November 13. The video was directed by Melina Matsoukas in Kingston, Jamaica. It enacts a poverty-stricken couple played by Natalie, of Wild Belle, and an underage lover struggling to make ends meet in their romantic relationship.
November 26 will mark the date of the band’s performance of “It’s Too Late” on Conan, only to continue their North American tour from there.
