Let’s Eat Grandma have yet surprised us again with the announcement of forthcoming debut album I, Gemini which releases on June 17th and with releasing two tracks from the album entitled Rapunzel and Eat Shiitake Mushrooms. The band have a poppy and timeless sound but with a deeper, darker meaning behind each track. Whilst listening to these two new songs, I was astonished at how brilliant they both sound lyrically, instrumentally, and vocally. The two inseperable friends since childhood, Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, surely know what they’re doing in the music industry and I can’t wait to see what the future beholds for them.
Rapunzel can be described as an eerie and chilling to the bone track, it will absolutely blow you away at first listen. The song gets better and better with each listen. It made its premiere on NPR: All Songs Considered which is huge for them. The track was inspired by “the original Grimms fairytales, as well as from the real life story of Genie, a girl who was abused by her father and kept in solitary confinement for the first 13 years of her life.” Listen to the mysterious, fairytale-like song below.
The second song released from their forthcoming debut album is called Eat Shiitake Mushrooms and is another cleverly written, mystical track that I love. It was premiered on The Fader which again, is absolutely wonderful for the upcoming act. Listen to this beautifully chilling song below.
