Published Mar 04, 2013Wild Belle have recently been touring in support of Toro y Moi, and now the Chicago-based siblings are ready to release their debut album. Isles is due out on March 12 through Columbia Records, and you can stream the whole think ahead of time on Exclaim.ca.
These 11 songs were written and self-produced by the brother-sister duo of Natalie and Elliot Bergman. Their pop-oriented genre forays frequently carry a beach-ready reggae undercurrent, and this runs through the danceable "It's Too Late," the laid-back "Backslider" and the woozily atmosphere-kissed "Keep You."
Natalie handles lead vocals, while Elliot contributes instruments including sax, which features prominently. Soak up the island atmosphere below.
