Lion Babe – “Treat Me Like Fire” Video
Lion Babe are quickly becoming one of those names that crop up in conversations about artists poised to break out in 2015. The silky vocals of Jillian Hervey and minimal, jazzy production of Lucas Goodman hit a sweet spot between pop, electronic, and R&B. Maneuvering through those three realms can be a difficult balancing act, but these two make it look like a cakewalk. “Treat Me Like Fire” is on the self-titled debut EP they released last month, and the visuals feature Hervey and Goodman flickering in and out of the frame in stark black and white. Nothing against Goodman, but when Hervey is the focus of the shot it’s almost impossible to look away; as the daughter of Vanessa Williams she has certainly inherited plenty of her mother’s charisma. It’s labeled as “visual #2″ because a previous video for “Treat Me Like Fire” already exists, but the understated nature of this new one indicates a quiet maturity that suits them well. Watch it below.
