Chicago’s own Wild Belle have dropped another video, this time for “Keep Off”. Similar to their recent clip for “Backslider”, there’s a stark ’60s feel that’s captured here, utilizing plenty of mustard yellows and dusty, ornate decor. The story, however, is far more concrete and highlights the plight between a small boy and his caretaker. There’s an undulating theme of first love that’s both tragic and charming.

Director Melina Matsoukas extrapolated on the video: “As a child, all we want is love and attention and that story never grows old, it just takes a different form as we age. So it’s not so much about ‘all men are boys,’ but just [that] all of us are forever young. Old habits never die.”

The duo’s new single, which includes “It’s Too Late”,  “Backslider”, and “Keep You”, is out now via Columbia Records. Their full-length studio album, Ises, will surface early 2013. Next week, they’ll return to the road with dates alongside Deep Sea Diver and of Montreal. They’re also opening Toro y Moi’s tour early next year. Consult the itinerary underneath the video.
