Is it just me or is it getting hot in here! Blazing straight out of the streets of New York City is the sultry electro-infused soul track “Treat Me Like Fire”. The massive tune is the first single from the duo comprised of Jillian Hervey and Lucas Goodman. The pair will soon be better known as LION BABE and I have a feeling their musical journey together is just beginning.
“Treat Me Like Fire” roars out the gate with a simple but inviting synth intro. The LION BABE vibe gets undeniably infectious as the soothing back beat sets in and the whole layer of sounds ooze through your pores. Hervey’s vocals are confident and strong but held in check with a beautiful display of controlled power. The “treat me like fire” echoing vocal sections is an interesting element that pulls together the overall sound of the track and it’s something unique that I really enjoyed hearing.
LION BABE’s first offering showcases a blend of musical styles that can take them far in 2013 and beyond. “Treat Me Like Fire” is the type of song I can very easily hear playing regularly on your favorite local radio station. We will just have to wait and see what happens!
