Water's Here In You by Babehoven album review by David Saxum for Northern Transmissions



Water's Here In You

Water’s Here In You by Babehoven isn’t just an album you listen to; it’s an emotional rollercoaster that takes you on a journey through the depths of human experience. From start to finish, it’s a captivating blend of indie folk melodies and poignant lyrics that resonate long after the music fades.

One standout track that embodies the album’s emotional depth is “Lonely, Cold Seed.” From the moment Maya’s vocals grace your ears, you’re transported to a realm of haunting beauty. The combination of ethereal instrumentals, including the use of organ and cymbals, creates a chilling atmosphere that seeps into your bones. It’s a song that speaks to the universal feeling of loneliness, evoking imagery of a seed buried beneath the cold snow of winter.

“Perfect” is another track that leaves a lasting impact. Beginning with a delicate guitar rhythm, Maya’s voice enters like a gentle breeze, carrying with it lyrics that cut straight to the heart. The raw emotion in her delivery is palpable, especially as she sings lines like, “I asked her how do you love… Someone who hurts you so much.” It’s a powerful exploration of love and pain that leaves you breathless.

What sets this album apart is its ability to transcend time and space through its music. Tracks like “My Best Friend Needs” and “Good to See You” transported me to a future filled with warmth and possibility, while others, like “Cherry” and “Birdseye,” anchored me to moments from my past. It’s a testament to Babehoven’s skill as storytellers, weaving narratives that resonate with listeners on a deeply personal level.

It’s evident that Babehoven has found their voice and is unapologetically staying true to their signature style. Though at times, this creates a repetitive sound that leaves you longing for some variety.

This is undeniably a powerful album. “Water’s Here In You” is a mesmerizing journey through the highs and lows of human emotion. With its captivating melodies and heartfelt lyrics, it’s an album that, once heard, will leave a lasting impression on anyone who listens.
