Jenny Hollingworth and Rosa Walton, the duo known as Let's Eat Grandma from Norwich UK, have been amassing critical acclaim for their semi-spooky electronic pop dreamscapes ever since they released I Gemini back in 2016. Their band name is taken from a grammatical joke meant to emphasize the importance of comma placement.
With their teen years waning, their new album I’m All Ears reveals just how well they have managed artistic growth and personal development. As Flood Magazine writes, "The album is a tumultuous and playful ride that leads back to hopeful moments—recording sounds of shattered glass, nodding to the chaos of a pub, the recording of a Nokia ringtone, and even a cat’s purr."
I’m All Ears is available now via Rough Trade Records.
