EDITORS’ NOTES

Singular adventures in pop oddness, recorded in a nuclear bunker in Norwich. Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth’s debut has many childlike charms: over-sweetened teenage-witch vocals; liberal use of glockenspiel and recorder; and a low-boredom-threshold flightiness that carries the pair from dimly-lit trip-hop (“Deep Six Textbook”) to sinister folk (“Chocolate Sludge Cake”) and lo-fi rave and hip-hop (“Eat Shiitake Mushrooms”). There’s nothing infantile about their execution though, and they layer sound and ideas into enrapturing melodies with skill and fearlessness.

About Let's Eat Grandma

Taking their name from the popular Internet grammar meme, Let's Eat Grandma is the otherworldly pop project of Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth. The pair became best friends while they were still children growing up in Norwich, U.K., and began making music together when they were 13. At first, they recorded themselves covering popular songs, but soon grew bored and began writing their own material, which was as likely to borrow from chart-topping acts as it was from Grimm's fairy tales or the likes of Björk or Kate Bush. By the time they were 15, Hollingworth and Walton were performing live shows, and were noticed by Kiran Leonard, who saw their name on a poster for the 2014 Norwich Sound & Vision Festival. The duo soon shared management with Leonard and signed to Transgressive Records. A trio of singles, "Deep Six Textbook," "Eat Shiitake Mushrooms," and "Rapunzel," arrived in early 2016, a few months before Let's Eat Grandma's first full-length I, Gemini (which was recorded in a former nuclear bunker) appeared that June. ~ Heather Phares
