ABOUT LION BABE Constantly embracing polarity, mixing and matching sounds and visuals to create something new and unique – LION BABE are the New York duo formed of singer/songwriter and performance artist Jillian Hervey and instrumentalist / producer Lucas Goodman aka Astro Raw. After the organic creation of the sultry, electronic soul track ‘Treat Me Like Fire’, they decided to give the song a home and create LION BABE. LION BABE draw on an eclectic mix of influences for their sonic and stunning visuals, which mirror the rich melting pot of cultures that New York offers. Citing the likes of A Tribe Called Quest and Sergeant Pepper-era Beatles as having a major impact on them both in their formative years, they identify with a generation brought up on the internet, with references from film and music of all genres, places and eras being just a click away. They released their debut studio album Begin earlier this year after a buzzed-about self-titled EP and string of singles, including “Treat Me Like Fire” and “Jump Hi” featuring Childish Gambino. The duo has since toured the world extensively, playing some of the largest music festivals in the world, and have collaborated with the likes of Pharrell Williams, Disclosure and more.
