Goth Babe has released his debut album Lola, the LP is now available via Mom + Pop Music. Since his breakthrough single “Sometimes” in 2018, Goth Babe (née Griff Washburn) has balanced his life as a musician with staying grounded and living a scaled-back lifestyle that allows him to pursue his love of the outdoors and the environment. Having spent time living in his car, a tiny house, and a camper van, all-inclusive of moments of joy and unfettered freedom as well as loneliness and trauma, Lola—his new album, named for the sailboat on which he now lives— is a splendid confirmation of Goth Babe’s story so far. All those shimmering sounds and topsy-turvy life dynamics coil into 11 incredible tracks that look for respite and redemption.

Earlier this week, Goth Babe released the album’s accompanying short film “Lola.” Griff’s story is special and the “Lola” documentary puts his success story as a musician, into context. Living in small spaces (and recording music in those spaces) has helped Griff pare his life down — making room for the important things in his life: travel, adventure, music, and most importantly, fun.

Griff first started his tiny living adventure in a camper van, then a tiny house (which burned down along with all his possessions), and eventually his sailboat, where he taught himself how to live out on the water when he’s not touring. He’s a surfer, skater, rock climber, and first and foremost an environmentalist — in fact, a portion of his live show proceeds are donated to Protect Our Winters.

Directed by Ian Durkin, the short film follows the making of his new album and offers an inside look into the artist behind Goth Babe (where you can also get to know his perpetual sidekick, his blue-eyed Australian Shepherd named Sadie).
