The “fire” that is Lion Babe continues to bring the heat with the Pharrell Williams-produced “Wonder Woman,” which recently got a space age/Barbarella video treatment and appears to be headed to digital store near you in May. But the duo composed of Jillian Hervey and Lucas Goodman kept things decidedly more down to earth for a live take of the track for the Vevo DSCVR series.
Backed by two strong-voiced singers and a gentleman on a drum machine, the pair gets right into the tune’s spare melody. Goodman works his MIDI machine, dropping synths and funk-infused swag that sets the tone for Hervey to take command of the at-home or on-the-go audience enjoying her performance. Her very presence commands attention, but she proves she knows what to do with it by flexing her arms and showing off the Wonder Woman-style bracelets.
The engagement is real and, taken with the playful nature of the lyrics, keeps watchers and listeners following along. The beast of a group kept our attention throughout this clip, so it’s a sure bet actually seeing them live would be quite a performance. We look forward to the next opportunity to sit back and enjoy the show.
