Ahead of the release of their new album ‘Sink Into Me’ on 18th March via Believe, Babeheaven are sharing their newest single ‘Heartbeat’.
“The lyrics to ‘Heartbeat’ were written on my way back from Luca’s house,” the band’s Nancy Andersen explains. “We drove past a car crash, which had a blue tarpaulin over it. It means a fatal incident has happened, but I didn’t know that until the driver told me. I wrote a poem about the moment - because really hit me, deeply Later, we started a song and we were caught in a cycle of chords. It was a good opportunity to use that poem. Inspired by Arthur Russell, the beat underneath it is pushing the words around. Like a chugging cello. But in this songs the drums go around and round until it breaks.”

Listen to new single ‘Make Me Wanna’ now.
A song “about feeling connected”.
Richly nuanced, effortlessly cool and at times beautifully bleak.
