Muze PNote Wild Belle's 2013 debut album, Isles, features the band's catchy, laid-back mix of indie pop, reggae, and singer/songwriter soul. Centered around the brother and sister duo of Elliot and Natalie Bergman, the Chicago-based Wild Belle often utilize Elliot's funk and reggae leanings as the leader of the Afro-pop ensemble NOMO (with whom Natalie has also toured). However, with songs largely based around Natalie's love of soul and melodic '60s pop, Wild Belle have a less frenetic, if still hypnotically languid take on NOMO's world fusion sound. In that sense, Isles has a kind of sultry, post-Amy Winehouse retro-soul aesthetic that's lightened by the sibling's own positive-minded, dance club hippie vibe. Tracks like the languid "Keep You" and the buoyant "Shine" largely work to showcase Natalie's cherubic croon by surrounding it with fuzzy synths, echoey percussion, and Elliot's own rootsy saxophone lines. Elsewhere, cuts like the shimmery, hip-swaying "Twisted" and the old-school reggae-sounding "June" help make Isles the perfect summer afternoon album, designed for doing nothing in particular besides soaking up the good vibes. ~ Matt Collar

Artist Overview

Brother-and-sister duo Wild Belle make folk-, dance-, reggae-, and psychedelic rock-tinged indie pop. Chicago-area natives Elliot and Natalie Bergman grew up playing music, with Elliot eventually studying jazz saxophone at the University of Michigan. The siblings first started playing together around 2006 when Elliot invited Natalie to tour as a backup singer/percussionist with his Afro-pop band, NOMO. Then, in 2011, they began working on Natalie's songs and Wild Belle were born. A year later, they had released the single "Keep You," and were drawing label interest after a high-profile show at Austin's South by Southwest festival. In 2013, Wild Belle released their debut album, Isles, on Columbia. ~ Matt Collar
