•Constantly embracing polarity, mixing and matching sounds and visuals to
create something new and unique, New York duo LION BABE, formed of
singer/songwriter and performance artist Jillian Hervey and instrumentalist
and producer Lucas Goodman, have released their highly anticipated debut
LION BABE EP on Outsiders Recorded Music (Universal Music) – and to
mark its release the band have unveiled the stunning visuals for their brand
new track ‘Jungle Lady’.
Written and produced by Hervey and Goodman, the EP is a sublime collection
of tracks, led by the intoxicating ‘Jump Hi’, featuring hip-hop artist Childish
Gambino and a mesmerising Nina Simone sample. ‘Jungle Lady’ is a
sensual affair packed with soul and passion which LION BABE songstress
Jillian describes as celebrating ‘love, fantasy and longing’ – inspiring its
visually arresting and breath-taking video which was directed by the band and
shot on the streets of New York.
Also featuring the old-school funk of ‘Don’t Break My Heart’ and the sultry
‘Treat Me Like Fire’ – with a special intro and bonus track ‘Little Dreamer’
exclusively available on vinyl release and streaming now – the EP showcases
LION BABE’s ethos for fearlessly reworking and reinventing the familiar,
combining it with their love of fantasy and the surreal, to make their own
unique pieces of art; a new kind of soul.
The release of the EP comes hot on the heels of the runaway success of
‘Jump Hi’, which has already amassed close to half a million streams on
Soundcloud – taking the band’s combined Soundcloud streams to over one
million – with the video attracting almost 350,000 views on Youtube. ‘Jump
Hi’ was also recently celebrated as Radio 1’s ‘Track Of The Day’ and has
been added to the station’s ‘In New Music We Trust’ playlist, signaling this is a
just a taste of huge things to come for LION BABE.
