i-D | Why Pharrel Faves Lion Babe Are The Future Of Soul

When Jillian Harvey performs live with Lucas Goodman, it's pretty obvious where the duo's name, Lion Babe, comes from. Harvey's hair becomes a mane as she twirls around the stage, her movement channelling the same free, flowing dances she does in the band's music videos. And babe? The black leotard with fishnets she rocked at Fendi's Midnight on Madison event drove that point home. Fresh off the release of their Pharrell-produced track Wonder Woman's new music video, the first single from their upcoming untitled album, they broke guests off with an earful of their signature sound. That meant a fair share of soulful crooning from Harvey paired Goodman's production, which nods to the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill. Before they took the stage, we caught up with the two backstage about their process and working with icons.
