Wild Belle • "Giving Up On You"

As far as bands in Chicago go, Wild Belle has been the talk of the town throughout 2015. The group returns here with a new video for their single, "Giving Up On You", which dropped last week. Doubling down on a banner year that has seen the brother-sister duo gain national attention and earn a spot on Lollapalooza's lineup, the group debuted this single on Apple Music's Beats1 and here it gets a visual rendering.

Here we see front woman Natalie Bergman set amongst the backing band, a distinct shift from earlier visuals which favored her heavily. The element is dope and calls to mind catching them earlier this year at Soho House where they did a special unplugged performance that was very refreshing all the way around. The single is the first off their upcoming album which apparently is slotted for a 2016 drop. This visual, meanwhile, was shot during a twelve hour dance party at Subterranean which provides a pretty unique backdrop throughout. Another great act out of the city doing some really fun things with the music, check Wild Belle out if you haven't already.
