Wild Belle – “It’s Too Late”

BEN KAYE/Consequence of Sound

Siblings Natalie and Elliot Bergman, aka Wild Belle, first drew attention to their reggae-infused swagger with the slinky single “Keep You”. Now, word has come that the Chicagoans have signed a deal with Columbia Records, and they’ve released a new single to go along with the news (via Prefix). “It’s Too Late” is heavy on the island flare, with reggae grooves bouncing over some jaunty synths. And then there’s that sax solo – hot damn, there’s that sax solo. It’s got soul, it’s got funk, it’s got a sultry-yet-playful vocals from Natalie; yeah, it’s got everything you need to keep you warm as the nights start getting longer. Here are your last vestiges of summer, readers; soak it in.
