Video: Wild Belle Throws 12 Hour Dance Party For New Single

Chicago sibling duo Wild Belle's sophomore album won't be out until 2016, but they just released the first taste of what you can expect the disc to sound like. "Giving Up On You" is a departure for the band, with a strong '80s electro-funk vibe.

The band shot the video in Chicago at Subterranean, and the duo says they "threw a 12 hour party where people could lose their inhibitions." The result is a wild visual party filled with throngs dancing to the upbeat dance rock tune the band spins out from the stage.

We're liking this more aggressive, dance floor oriented approach. This video will help tide us over until the new album appears in January.
