Babehoven toils with grief on “Bad Week,” It’s the duo’s first single ahead of their forthcoming EP “Nastavi, Calliope“. Frontwoman Maya Bon’s guitar and vocals are at front and centre, with drums and a needling, fuzzy synth adding depth and texture to the emotionally raw song. Lyrically, Bon ruminates over the long haul of coping with loss as “bad weeks” keep on piling up. “Though this realization can feel staggering, it can also feel like an honest admission to self: these times are very hard and yet I want to move forward,” said Bon in a statement, “I want to feel, I want to grow. ‘Bad Week’ is my attempt to commit to myself in these feelings.” Loss and family are set to be prevalent themes on Nastavi, Calliope; the title comes from both Bon’s Croatian roots and the name of her beloved childhood dog.

Bad Week” by Babehoven from the upcoming Nastavi, Calliope EP, available July 9, 2021. This song is a hand reached inward to the swelling and amorphous cavities of grief. As time keeps moving forward, I have found that it can feel as if the ‘bad days’ keep going, growing into ‘bad weeks,’ ‘bad years,’ into new levels of struggle that are hard to move through. Though this realization can feel staggering, it can also feel like an honest admission to self: these times are very hard and yet I want to move forward, I want to feel, I want to grow. ‘Bad Week’ is my attempt to commit to myself in these feelings.
