Wild Belle | Giving Up On You (Video)

October 6, 2015 at 8:48 am Leave a comment

One-two punch, siblings Natalie and Elliot Bergman of Wild Belle have a new song “Giving Up On You”, and it’s accompanied by a new video directed by Alan Del Rio Ortiz, who also created the recent Nowness video of St. Vincent, and last year’s video for Danny Brown’s “Smokin and Drinkin”. “Giving Up on You”, produced by Dave Sitek of TV On the Radio, is the lead single from Wild Belle’s forthcoming sophomore album, out January via Columbia. Fans may notice a distinct lack of that reggae-groove the band has become known for in tracks like “Keep You”, but the jazzy brass is still there and so is Natalie’s vocal propulsion. Her sound is much deeper and rocked out than usual, and you can’t help but get caught up in the energy of the club dance-off , the frenetic pace, and one of the band’s simpler, wicked bass beats — which feels like a throwback to the Talking Heads or Spoon. The song is about trying to leave a relationship with a bad boy in the dust: “Lovin’ you is drinking poison / I have no other choice / I’m giving’ up on you.” You can follow the band at facebook, twitter— David D. Robbins Jr.
