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, Rovi
