Remember that patronising idiom “in one ear out the other” when your focus drifted at school? When trigonometry or chemistry couldn’t quite steal your attention from girls, boys, or scrawling genitalia on text books? Or those flapjacks half dipped in chocolate that were 15p from the canteen?

Well, just occasionally, when you find something worth listening to, it goes straight from your ears to your heart. Babeheaven’s debut single Heaven does just that. The West London five-piece have combined the popular with the esoteric, and cooked up a special strain of reflective Alt-pop that is all their own.

Nancy’s lead vocal shines with a delicate strength, elevated by a gentle, upbeat groove and subtle synth work, with some slick production imbuing the song with a benevolent, atmospheric haziness.

Heaven is out now on Handsome Dad Records.
