Rawr! Lion Babe is back on the prowl!
The New York City-based alternative soul duo is taking their independent music grind to another level with the video for their new single “Jump Hi” featuring Childish Gambino.
Shot on the streets of the Big Apple, the video finds lead vocalist Jillian Hervey singing, walking, dancing and jumping (of course) as an undeniably sexy lioness.
Welcome to the jungle—the girl is bad, isn’t she?
Her jazz-tinged vocals—which have been lazily compared to Erykah Badu—paired with fresh production from Goodman, find perfect company amongst the budding blipster musical movement of today—Miguel, Solange, Roman GianArthur, Jhene Aiko, and Lianne La Havas among them.
The group, comprised of Hervey (the daughter of veteran actress and singer Vanessa L. Williams), and producer/musician Lucas Goodman, caught some buzz back in 2012, thanks to their infectious debut single “Treat Me Like Fire.”
“Jump Hi” is now available on iTunes, and serves as the precursor to their self-titled debut EP slated for release in December 2014.
