Brooklyn duo, Lion Babe, have just dropped their new mixtape, Sun Joint, and with perfect timing, as were still in the infancy of summer. The mixtape's title track, "Sun Joint," embodies everything the R&B duo represents: electro-neo soul and organic, feel-good vibes.
"Sun Joint" includes elements of R&B and electronic with Jillian Hervey's irresistible smooth and soulful vocals throughout the track. It invokes the chilled-out summer feelings of basking in the sunshine and Hervey's angelic voice, with Lucas Goodman channeling vintage soul for the production of the track. The pair keep the relaxed theme and soulful electricy throughout the entire mixtape, with a subtle homag to disco on Tina Turner and some reggae warmth on Still in Love, "Sun Joint" has all the sonic components to fit right into your summer soundtrack.
Lion Babe is headed on their North American tour, which begins on July 1st at the Essence Festival in New Orleans.
