New Music Feature: Lion Babe – “Hit The Ceiling”

Today, New York-based duo LION BABE have shared their latest song, “Hit The Ceiling.” Produced by the band’s own Astro Raw – aka Lucas Goodman – the track is LION BABE at their most essential. Mixing funk, soul, electronics and singer Jillian Hervey’s signature sultry vocals, the song arrives just in time for the start of Summer.

“Hit The Ceiling” is the latest song to be offered from LION BABE’s forthcoming new project, which is set for release later in 2017. Earlier this year, the band shared the first taste of the project via the funk jam “Rockets” featuring Moe Moks, which received its first look on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program. The forthcoming project will be the first studio release from LION BABE since their 2016 debut album, Begin. That album, which was released amid a wave of acclaim and attention, featured the career-defining singles “Jump Hi” and “Treat Me Like Fire,” and found the duo collaborating with the likes of Pharrell Williams and Childish Gambino. Last summer, the duo released the sun-kissed mixtape Sun Joint, which coincided with their first headline US tour and a string of international festival performances, including Glastonbury, ESSENCE, Afropunk, Reading & Leeds and more.

Recently, LION BABE’s Astro Raw shared his debut mixtape project, rawmix vol 1. The 14-track project mixes Astro Raw’s stellar, one-of-a-kind production with his infectious, genre-defying sounds, seamlessly mixing R&B, hip-hop, soul, funk and dance. It’s a sound that The 405 described as “sonic crack.” To listen to rawmix vol. 1, click here.
