New York-based R&B/Soul duo LION BABE, aka vocalist Jillian Hervey and producer Lucas Goodman, are pleased to share the music video for their song “Got Body.” The song is taken from their debut album, Begin, which was released earlier this year to critical acclaim. The video, which was directed by Julian Branciforte, premiered yesterday exclusively via Pitchfork.
The video for the self-empowering song was shot in and around LION BABE’s own stomping grounds of East Village and Lower East Side in New York. A day-in-the-life, the clip follows Jillian and Lucas on a typical day from riding the subway to hunting for Vinyl (Jillian even finds an old LP of her mother’s!) to working on new music in their home studio, to hanging out with friends.
Most recently, LION BABE released a modern spin on Tom Jones’ 1970’s hit “She’s A Lady.” The electro-tinged track was featured in H&M’s Fall 2016 campaign, of which Jillian Hervey also starred. The duo made their network television debut in October, performing “She’s A Lady” on The TODAY Show, which can be viewed here. Earlier this summer, the duo released their first-ever mixtape, Sun Joint, in conjunction with their first headlining tour of North America. The project, which featured tracks like lead single “Endless Summer” and live favorite “Tina Turner,” expertly weaves together the band’s signature Technicolor pallet of sounds, including soul, funk, electronics and earworm melodies, further pushing the signature sound LION BABE developed on their debut album. The duo is currently gearing up to release a new music project, which will be out before the end of the year.
