Video: Wild Belle – “Backslider”


Groovy new group Wild Belle releases a third track from their upcoming 2012 album, Isles. Won’t lie, the retro hipster aesthetic of this video has kinda stolen our hearts. The song is called “Backslider” and has a smooth retro-pop feel with tropical tinges. Their other singles, “Keep You” and “It’s Too Late” also hold a similar tropical thread, mixed in with reggae, jazz, and soul vibes as well. You can watch those videos after the jump. Love the lead singer’s honeyish voice.

Hop over to the NY Times blog to read an interview with the band.

And now, carry on with your hip twisting and what not.
