Summer is coming and finding new songs to groove to is a priority. A poppin’ playlist can set any BBQ or summertime activity off right. Lion Babe dropped their newest track, Hit The Ceiling, yesterday and it is one to be considered. This track is a smooth blend of funk, soul, electronics, and the mesmerizing vocals of Jillian Hervey. Produced by band member Astro Raw (Lucas Goodman), this track is well put together with all the necessary ingredients for a banger.
“Hit The Ceiling” is the first track off Lion Babe’s new project scheduled to drop later this year. Aside from working on that, Astro Raw has been doing his own thing. He released his debut mixtape project titled raw mix vol 1. This mixtape is a solid audio project that combines Astro Raw’s crisp production with R&B, hip-hop, soul, funk, and dance sounds. All of Lion Babe’s tracks hit the mark creating a ton of buzz for what’s next to come. The talented duo has worked with Pharrell Williams and Childish Gambino so you know they are packing some heat. They’ve been turning things up for stages all over including Afropunk and ESSENCE Music Festival as well as Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds.
There is no doubt that Lion Babe is going to make their presence known this summer and when their new project drops later this year. For now, press play below to get a taste of what they’re mixing up and follow them on Instagram and Soundcloud for updates.
