"New York funk-soul duo Lion Babe ignite a funky, psychedelic dance party..." - ROLLING STONE
“Polished groove-funk undertones alongside glitch electronica and rap …’Cosmic Wind' feels like an assured step forward from the New York duo.” - EVENING STANDARD
“A sonic patchwork of R&B, soul and dance-pop threaded together with Jillian’s powerful, cruising vocals and Lucas’ artful melding” – NOTION
"Jillian Hervey's strong, soulful vocals shine through, accompanied by the production influence of Lucas Goodman, who plays with genre intersection without falling too deep into the experimental world of alternative R&B. Lion Babe created a feel-good record that is certain to make the listener move." - ASSOCIATED PRESS
New York based duo LION BABE (comprised of singer / songwriter Jillian Hervey and producer Lucas Goodman) celebrate the conclusion of their ‘Cosmic Wind’ album’s journey with a three-part video series, including the release of ‘Sexy Please’ official music video on February 17th, ‘Different Planet’ official music video on March 9th, and today (March 31st) the official music video for ‘Cosmic Wind’ official music video to coincide with the album’s one-year anniversary.
These visuals reflect the “mood and feeling of the album. Cosmic Wind is about finding one’s self when faced with inevitable change and these visuals bring those ideas to life. They celebrate the quest to be free and are connected with the nature of life along with natural inclination as humans to be imaginative and visualize a beautiful way to move through the world.“
The album ‘Cosmic Wind’, released last year and following their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Begin’ from 2016, offered stand out singles ‘Western World’, which pulled inspiration from the Pet Shop Boys timeless song ‘West End Girls’ and featured hip-hop legend Raekwon, and the disco-infused bop ‘The Wave’ featuring Leikeli47. The 15-track Cosmic Wind album is an introspective turn, highlighting the duo's growth socially, physically, lyrically; musically!
In January LION BABE released their funky, House take on Nelly’s hip-hop hit ‘Hot in Herre’ and is one of the duo’s “favorite anthems [which] deserves a female reboot. Thankful for The Neptunes and Nelly for sparking the fire in us when we were both getting into music’. The track was tipped as one of the ‘best R&B songs right now’ by The FADER and shot to the top of Hype Machine’s number one spot within days of its release.
Since 2014, the duo have garnered an impressive music catalogue throughout the years, and have collaborated with some music favorites such as rapper / actor Childish Gambino, and house music's sibling duo, Disclosure, who featured the New York natives on their smash single "Hourglass," which they performed at huge stages across the world. In 2018, HBO's Original Series, Insecure, "Obsessed Like" recruited Lion Babe for their singles "Hits the Ceiling," and "Just Me", which were broadcasted for Seasons 1 and 3.
