Babehoven Share Origins of “Ella’s from Somewhere Else”: Exclusive

3 weeks ago 23

Welcome back to Origins, our recurring series that gives artists a space to break down everything that went into their latest release. Today, Babehoven take us through “Ella’s from Somewhere Else,” the latest single from their upcoming album, Water’s Here in You.

Hudson, New York indie rockers Babehoven have dropped “Ella’s from Somewhere Else,” the latest preview of their forthcoming album, Water’s Here in You. The song is a gentle and somber (though not downtrodden) folk outing that taps into the beauty of romance, familial love, and loss.

“I want to go back to our mom’s porch and scream,” vocalist Maya Bon sings over a stunning backdrop of acoustic guitar and piano. “You’re my brother, you’re my family, you are everything to me.”

The song empowers its themes by pulling from science fiction, the intersection of love and pain, and the wondrous talents of Squirrel Flower’s Ella O’Conner Williams. “Seeing Ella live shakes something up in me that feels like a chiropractic adjustment, like she’s moving my spiritual spine back into alignment,” Bon tells Consequence. “She takes me to specific memories of my childhood. We slip together through the seams of the place we’re in, through the floorboards, down into the soil. She takes me into the pain, just enough so that I can keep my grounding.”
