Lion Babe is one of those weird duos like La Roux or AlunaGeorge that you'd assume was a solo artist at first. As with those other acts, all focus will be on Lion Babe's female lead singer, Jillian Hervey, rather than the male producer, Lucas Goodman. I first heard of them about a year ago when the stylish tribal video for Treat Me Like Fire appeared online. They went a little quiet as the year went on, but are now being talked about as an act to watch in 2014. As their music video shows, Jillian is a star in the making with a distinctive look and fearless attitude. That surely comes from her super-cool mum, singer and actress Vanessa Williams, who you might know from Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives.
