Babehoven Unveil New Single ‘Lightness Is Loud’

    Babehoven have released a new single, ‘Lightness Is Loud’, lifted from their forthcoming LP Water’s Here in You. It follows previous offerings ‘Birdseye’ and ‘Chariot’. Check it out below.

    “We exist in a vacuum of sound, trying to hear each other, wishing to open up, seeing the abundance of light surrounding us, approximately 200 billion trillion stars and yet we falter, we harden in our shells,” the band’s Maya Bon said of the new song in a statement. “With the ‘coral snake curl[ing] inside you,’ I intend to evoke an image of protection. The ‘soft wool’ is the innate warmth and safety one can find within connection. The ‘rough blue’ is the scratchiness of the wool that can cause us to seek refuge away from one another. And the ‘pearl inside you’ is indicative of the belief that we all contain beauty, worthiness, a special gem within us.”

    Water’s Here In You, the follow-up to the New York duo’s debut album Light Moving Time, drops on April 26 through Double Double Whammy. Read our 2021 Artist Spotlight feature and our 2022 inspirations interview with Babehoven.
