BABEHOVEN – ” Yellow Has A Pretty Good Reputation “

Posted: January 13, 2022 in MUSIC

This EP explores dissociation, loss, and the quest for self-love. Working with sound artist Ryan Albert, we used tape recordings as a way to manipulate voice and instrumentation. To highlight a sense of detachment from the day-to-day, the slow, slightly lower drawl of the voice represents what it feels like to be in a state of persistent, mild delirium.

The saturated, tape distorted quality of the recordings evokes a sense of nostalgia, while also separating listener from original sound, the same way someone experiencing dissociation and loss is separated from regularity. In this way, the main inspiration for this EP is to capture a realization of warped reality; fragmented, but still conscious, the lyrics examine difficult feelings.

Since starting Babehoven in Portland, Oregon in 2017, Maya Bon has shown herself to be a gifted heart-on-sleeve songwriter, using music to peel back the layers of her own experiences—sometimes sad, sometimes surreal, always vividly rendered—to reveal universal emotional truths hidden in the most intimately personal of details.
