LION BABE DEBUT NEW TRACK ‘JUMP HI’ FEATURING CHILDISH GAMBINO TAKEN FROM THE FORTHCOMING LION BABE EP EP OUT DECEMBER 15TH
Constantly embracing polarity, mixing and matching sounds and visuals to create something new and unique, New York duo LION BABE – formed of singer/songwriter Jillian Hervey and instrumentalist and producer Lucas Goodman – have debuted their brand new track ‘Jump Hi’, featuring hip-hop artist Childish Gambino.
Written by Jillian, produced by Lucas and featuring a mesmerising Nina Simone sample, the intoxicating ‘Jump Hi’ serves as the lead single from their forthcoming debut LION BABE EP. The EP is a sublime collection of tracks which showcase the band’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. Also featuring the sultry ‘Treat Me Like Fire’, the EP is out December 15th, on Outsiders Recorded Music (Universal Music).
LION BABE draw on an eclectic mix of influences for their sonic and stunning visuals, which mirror the rich melting pot of cultures of New York – where the pair met at the end of their college experiences. Citing the likes of A Tribe Called Quest and Sergeant Pepper-era Beatles as major influences, they embrace being part of a generation brought up on the internet, with a myriad of references across film and music of all genres, places and eras being just a click away.
