Yeah it’s the second time Lion Babe has been our #MusicMonday pick. You can read all about this duo here on our previous post. I am a self confessed Lion Babe obsessive. I bloomin’ love the Lion Babe EP and it’s on constant repeat at Blink Towers.
If you pop in anytime soon do watch out if ‘Impossible’ is playing as there may well be general whirling and twirling with handfuls of glitter being flung willy-nilly. Consider yourself warned…
Here’s our Music Monday post and it’s so hot off the presses there’s no video yet. Keep an eye out for one though as it’s sure to be very cool.
This is Lion Babe, an American duo made up of producer/multi-instrumentalist, Lucas Goodman, and singer-songwriter, Jillian Hervey (who is gaining additional notoriety for her amazing lush locks). There signature funky sound has been enhanced on this track by the inclusion of Pharrell Williams‘ skills producing and contributing vocals.
I love Hervey’s vocal tone as well as her femenist vibe- reminding me lots of Eryka Badu but in a less incesey way, although just as super cool.
This band is looking to go far in 2015 with this accessible yet innovative sound. ‘Wonder Woman’ is taken from their debut album which is dropping imminently. Watch out for it as based on this, I think it’ll be a goodun.
