Babehoven Unveil New Single ‘Ella’s From Somewhere Else’

    Babehoven have released ‘Ella’s From Somewhere Else’, a new single from the duo’s upcoming record Water’s Here in You. It follows previous cuts ‘Lightness Is Loud’, ‘Birdseye’ and ‘Chariot’. Check it out below.

    “I wrote ‘Ella’s From Somewhere Else’ after seeing Ella O’Conner Williams of Squirrel Flower perform last winter,” Maya Bon explained in a statement. “When I got home from the show, I found some quiet space alone, I lit a few candles and kept the lights off. I began thinking of all the places Ella takes me in her songs. She takes me to specific memories of my childhood, she takes me into the pain, just enough so that I can keep my grounding. Ella is also the name of my childhood dog who supported me through my teens, who I think of as a best friend. I began blending the two Ella’s in the song and they morphed to have a double meaning altogether. Not only is Ella of Squirrel Flower from somewhere else, but Ella the dog is from somewhere else. They both take me to that somewhere else place together.”

    Water’s Here In You arrives on April 26 through Double Double Whammy. Read our 2021 Artist Spotlight feature and our 2022 inspirations interview with Babehoven.
