Hovvdy returned today with their new single, “Bubba.” Produced by Andrew Sarlo and Ben Littlejohn, the duo’s song is a dreamy tale about wanting to offer someone a helping hand. The release also came with a music video, filmed inside of a car, as blue lighting takes over throughout.

“The song tells a story from two perspectives: the brother (Bubba) and his sister,” Charlie Martin, one half of the band, shared in a statement. “It’s about sibling-hood in the midst of really hard times and getting through it all together. I was lucky to have my older brother through all our childhood shit, and I can’t imagine how it would’ve gone without him. But still it’s tough and time flies and we grow older and process in our own ways; and this song is about how that feels.”

The band will be playing a handful of dates throughout the rest of 2023, before going to support Cold War Kids on their tour next year. More information is available through Hovvdy’s website.
