Wild Belle – ‘It’s Too Late EP’

Wild Belle - 'It’s Too Late EP'


Natalie Bergman’s got about as much passion as an egg sandwich

The natural habitat for brother-sister duo Wild Belle’s debut EP would be in the VIP area at a dry festival full of weekend music fans drinking Innocent smoothies while perched on hay bales talking about next season’s Ikea catalogue. If this writer had a lover who sang “I’m in love” the way Natalie Bergman does on the song of the same name, it would definitely be over straight away. No questions asked. The lady’s got about as much passion as an egg sandwich. Lead track ‘It’s Too Late’ isn’t obviously agonising, until you hear it more than once. What it does make clear is that the time has come to ban cod-reggae forever.
