POP Montreal 2016: Let’s Eat Grandma
Everything is as easy as falling out of a tree for twisted feral-pop duo Let’s Eat Grandma.
Wildly imaginative multi-instrumentalists and talented putative pop stars Rosa, 16, and Jenny, 17, met when they were four years old and have been inseparable ever since. They only started playing music together four years ago and since then they’ve been declared “the best band on Earth” by Kiran Leonard, received airplay and recorded sessions for BBC Radio 1, Radio X and BBC 6 Music, received praise from Richard Dawson, been written about by the NME, The Guardian and The Quietus, not to mention playing live shows at The Forge, Electrowerkz and Latitude. This June saw them release their debut album, I, Gemini on Transgressive… and they only sat their GCSEs last year.
This trip marks the band’s first ever time playing in North America, with two shows scheduled in New York, as well as their appearance at Pop Montreal. The support of PRSF’s International Showcase Fund is massive boost to what they’ll be able to achieve out there.
Let’s Eat Grandma have delivered a smashing debut LP at the age most people are still only just thinking about getting a band together. They say they hope it gets them invited to play on ‘Later… With Jools Holland’ and a chance to play live in Japan. One can only imagine they’ll easily achieve this and much, much more while still teenagers.
