One To Watch – Wild Belle
Wild Belle are a synth-pop band that are set to follow in the footsteps of Lana Del Rey-like internet hysteria and become the talked about band of the moment. The brother and sister duo of Natalie Bergman as the attractive front and vocals and handsome Elliot Bergman on saxophone and keyboard, definitely have ‘the look’. They press all the right buttons – they are attractive, rock a trendy alt -tyle and have ditched a glitzy website for a tumblr page full of GIFS, fashion images and cool black and white archive shots.
Wild Belle do only have two songs to their name Keep You and Take Me Away, but they have just been signed to massive label and have been on a lot of people in the music biz’s radar since stand out performances at SXSW. Expect a whole load of hype to be coming your way. Natalie Bergman’s vocals are all-conquering despite the heavy instruments she has behind her, but still has a almost I might break at any moment quality to it.
Keep You shows that you never know what you’ll get with their tracks with a perfectly produced reggae-tinged rhythm section put alongside a more syth-heavy beat. Take Me Away is even better, so it leaves you gasping for air, but wanting a lot more!
