New Music Video: Honey Dew – Lion Babe

Jillian Hervey and Lucas Goodman – aka LION BABE – have released a mesmerising and epic visual for their latest single ‘Honey Dew’.

Shot in New York’s Taconic Sculpture Park and directed by Chalalai Fischbach and Jett Cain with creative direction from LION BABE, the hazy/ cinematic clip is another stellar example of the dazzling creativity that has set the duo apart in their own league, since they first burst onto the scene with their debut track and visual for the modern classic ‘Treat Me Like Fire’.

The visual follows the release of a set of brand new remixes for their two latest tracks ‘Rockets’ (feat Moe Moks) and ‘Hit The Ceiling’ which saw ‘Rockets’ (feat Moe Moks) given an urgent, Afrostep remix by mOma+Guy and a sultry and soulful update from Simen Sez, whilst ‘Hit The Ceiling’ was given an addictive dance-funk remix from Zikomo and received the remix treatment from legendary dance producer and DJ Kenny Dope.

‘Honey Dew’ was released last month and is taken from LION BABE’s forthcoming project which is out later this year…for now, check out the video…
