Brother-and-sister duo Wild Belle make folk-, dance-, reggae-, and psychedelic rock-tinged indie pop.
The duo, 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, Rovi
