BABEHOVEN – “CHARIOT”

“‘Chariot’ is about changing perspectives; it is about sparkling through the chaos,” Babehoven’s Maya Bon say of the duo’s pensive new single. “To be whole, fresh, full of water, full of life. To glide through the winding paths as a lesson in malleability. Ryan and I collaborated in a new way on this song: he wrote a guitar part I liked, I wrote some lyrics, we wrote a chorus together. We explored songwriting as a team in the dead of upstate winter in 2023, finding solace in the slippery, cherry-red warmth of its sound.” It arrives as they begin a tour with Slow Pulp.

It showcases that there’s not one answer, and that joy and serenity can be found in everything, from arts and crafts to the meticulous work of a train conductor.”

It felt like a perfect metaphor: standing outside and wishing so badly to be let in, when really… wrong house. This song is about relief and hope as much as it is about yearning and desperation – the anticipation of thinking that maybe this is it, this is what the bad times were worth pushing through for, this is when I finally get to put some furniture down and call this place home.”

HOT CHIP – “FIRE OF MERCY” (YUNÈ PINKU REMIX)

“After featuring on the original version, it was really cool to get the opportunity to reimagine the track in a different way,” says yunè pinku of her remix of her collab single with Hot Chip. “Hot Chip are such icons within the electronic space – it’s been a huge pleasure to be able to collaborate in this way with them.” Hot Chip add: “yunè pinku was a delight to work with in the studio on Fire of Mercy and other tunes we were jamming on, and we’re so pleased she’s turned in this banger of a remix on top of the collaboration!”
