LET’S EAT GRANDMA
Two Ribbons (Transgressive)
The fraying of a deeply personal yet professional relationship, Two Ribbons from Let’s Eat Grandma characterises itself as an ode to the transparency of childhood friends Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, who’ve been entangled within the same experimental sludge-pop project from an early age.
Two Ribbons is the first material we’ve heard from Let’s Eat Grandma since 2018’s award-winning I’m All Ears, co-produced by returning Welsh innovator David Wrench. Grief-stricken, the record is deeply personal to the duo as opposed to just one entity. Where there is hostility, there is also acceptance and the reaffirming of two tightly-knit individuals.
Two Ribbons feels more accessible than past releases. The album’s first half includes the sentimental success of Watching You Go and the industrial textures of Levitation. The second half is all about the slow burners. The title track and the ambient, ethereal nature of Sunday are distinguishable, bypassing chunky bass and energetic drums for a few of those stop-dead-on-the-dancefloor moments.
