Alternative-pop songstress JOHANNA AMELIE debuts minimal-pop gem 'Lion Babe'

Lion Babe is the debut release of Berlin based Johanna Amelie. As haunting as it is beautiful, the multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter cites Regina Spektor and Joni Mitchell as her main influences. Working with producer Gordon Raphael (The Strokes) to create the stunning lead track ‘Lion Babe’

“Lion Babe has an amazing story and Johanna’s voice is just soaring!” Says Raphael “I met Johanna in Berlin producing and mixing several songs for her upcoming new album. She writes, plays and sings with rare insight and power’

Johanna describes Lion Babe as the story of an archetypal young person coming to the big city (Berlin) in pursuit of independence, only to go under, carried away by the tide. Johanna’s lyrics have an undercurrent of irony and sadness, a modern-day siren song.

Released together with ‘From Within’ which hints at the depth of her song-writing. Building effortlessly, echoing The Cocteau Twins and Florence and The Machine highlighting all the promise of youth.

Released on Zero Hours Record on August 18th.
