    Digging further into more intense feelings with their recent music, Let’s Eat Grandma give you synth-pop with loads of emotional welly.

    Let’s Eat Grandma released their second album, I’m All Ears, in 2018. It came out to a blaze of critical glory, thrilled fans who’d been with them since debut I, Gemini, and won them interested new listeners as they widened their musical scope.

    They won Album of the Year at the Q Awards along with many end of year list placements, toured relentlessly, played a life-changing set at Coachella and then returned with Two Ribbons.

    That album tells the story of the previous three years from both Jenny Hollingworth and Rosa Walton’s points of view. As a body of work, it’s astonishing: a dazzling, heart-breaking, life-affirming and mortality-facing record that reveals their growing artistry and ability to parse intense feeling into the most potent lyrics.

    As the pair’s life experiences diverged for the first time, they were driven to write more individually-led songs that read almost as letters to the other.

    The themes are infused with emotion and a desire to express the inexpressible – from losing a loved one and the reality of mourning, to a new understanding of, and explorations in, sexuality.

    Sonically this album is a trip – co-produced with David Wrench (The xx, Frank Ocean, Marika Hackman), the album contains the future prog-pop sheen explored on their prior album, but also blended with more organic instrumentation that balances out the dancefloor fillers.
