Before kicking off their trek in July, NYC duo Lion Babe are gearing up to drop a new mixtape called Sun Joint, and this is the first offering.
It continues the sound they’re known for: a happy, funky, pop groove that’s just right for these warm summer months. The lyric speak of dropping a dead weight relationship right before enjoying the carefree days of summer. The cover shows members Jillian Hervey and Lucas Goodman as kids on the beach.
“The endless summer in my mind, it makes it easy / I’m gonna leave it all behind for you to see me,” she sings on the hook.
Cheers to the summer!
