This one feels like the beginnings of something special -
…or is it?
“Treat Me Like Fire,”
the debut single & now music video from NYC duo LION BABE
has all the makings of a hit – and to be completely honest,
we’re not quite sure how we feel about that.
The song is catchy – sexy but understated,
the video is extremely well made,
their image is masterfully crafted (if you’re into that),
but, in the interest of full disclosure -
the group’s backing does come w/ a few advantages -
namely that, singer, Jillian Hervey,
is the daughter of model/singer turned Hollywood mainstay, Vanessa Williams
(a fact that surely will take some time before it goes unmentioned).
But, with that said, if you go into it all knowing the above -
it’s still a pretty damn good song.
The jury’s still out if this yet another case of
the “cool indie crowd” getting Lana Del Rey’ed by the powers that be,
but we’ll be giving this single some decent play until then.
