Babehoven release “Ella’s From Somewhere Else,” the new single and closing track from their forthcoming album, Water’s Here In You. Of the song, Bon says “I wrote ‘Ella’s From Somewhere Else’ after seeing Ella O’Conner Williams of Squirrel Flower perform last winter. 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.” Babehoven have also expanded their spring and summer tour that includes dates with Wednesday, Greg Mendez, Horse Jumper of Love and more.

Written and recorded at 12 Lb Genius, the duo’s home studio, throughout the winter of 2022–2023, Water’s Here In You comes close on the heels of the band’s debut album Light Moving Time. This latest album continues the thread of the band’s sonic DNA—blending hyper-melodic indie and folk rock with shades of shoegaze and the occasional nod toward country—but what sets it apart is the nature of the collaboration at its core. For the first time, Albert—who has operated as instrumentalist, producer, and engineer on past releases—joins forces with Bon as a songwriter, lending new depths to their musical partnership.
