Babeheaven Share New Single “The Hours”

Babeheaven, the West London five piece led by Nancy Andersen (vocals) and Jamie Travis (instruments and production), today share their latest single, “The Hours” – the first new material to be heard from the pair since the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, Home For Now, late last year. 

A beautiful, mellow and contemplative track, Nancy said the following about “The Hours”, which had its first radio play on Lauren Laverne on BBC Radio 6 Music. “When writing this song I was thinking a lot about the concept of time shifting and the realities that we end up repeating and reliving. I wanted to reflect the mundaneness of life in the chorus’ repetition of “on and on”.

I was also thinking about how irrelevant we can seem when compared to the vastness of the open sky. The feeling of loneliness that comes when you’re sitting on the train looking at people whose worlds seem so far away. But also the unity in knowing that someone else might be feeling the same, remembering that all you need to do is reach out and find company. To be embraced by a community, to not feel alone even when you have been solitary for a while.”

A stunning new single release, this intoxicating vibe emits from the soulful strums and dreamy vocal harmonies. Deliberating festering this compelling atmosphere filled with deep hooks and a lasting impression, the immersive instrumentation that brings this sweeter ambiance to the forefront of the vision, provides a contrast to the intimate, raw lyrics that channel such authenticity into the vibrant arrangement.
