hmv's Next Big Thing... #24 Lion Babe
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you neo-soul duo Lion Babe and their glorious pop songs...
Who Are They?
Lion Babe are singer Jillian Hervey and multi-instrumentalist Lucas Goodman, they hail from New York, they've been gigging since early 2014 and they're currently gearing up for the release of their debut album.
Who Do They Sound Like?
Their sound is a mix of classic soul and pop, think Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu and Amy Winehouse all set to the clicky beats and thundering rhythms of Pharrell (who has been working with the pair) and Timbaland. If you loved BANKS, Lykke Li and Jessie Ware, there's plenty here for you.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Between Hervey's incredible voice, Goodman's luscious beats and their massive choruses, there's enough to draw you in...
Can I Hear Something?
Their latest single 'Wonder Woman' is below for you and available here digitally.
