Friends since the age of four, Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth began making music in their early teens. Let’s Eat Grandma was formed in 2013 and became one of the most-talked-about bands of 2016 after the release of their debut album, I, Gemini.
Walton and Hollingworth describe their sound as ‘experimental sludge pop’. Usingoften-ignored instruments such as the recorder, they combine playground chantsand haunting, breathy vocals with synth-pop hooks to create a sound that’s all their own.
Let’s Eat Grandma soar way beyond the idea of them being a novelty act. Falling Into Me moves from poppy beats to moody, electro sounds, while Donnie Darko is a fragile, beautiful ballad.
From their earlier work, Eat Shiitake Mushrooms illustrates their ability to thread the slightly childlike and slightly sinister together. Xylophones give way to a darker bass sound which, in turn, spirals into a delicate melody. They’re complex, innovative, and different from the norm.
