What’s New? Babehoven – Close Behind

Opening with pastoral organs and an eerie breeze blowing in the background, Babehoven‘s ‘Close Behind’ is a slow-burning thing of beauty. Guitar strums and ambient percussion step in and out as the track’s melodies unfurl, and it swells to a mighty crescendo over its 6-minute runtime. 

Channelling the emotional honesty of Haley Heynderickx, Grouper’s intimate acoustics and the ambition of Angel Olsen’s last project, ‘Close Behind’ is a gorgeous, gentle tempest with Maya Bon’s voice anchoring the track amongst the swirling noise. The last track of their most recent EP, Demonstrating Visible Difference of Height, Babehoven are masters of subtlety.
