Let’s Eat Grandma open up about going pop on new album I’m All Ears
Eccentric duo Let’s Eat Grandma have opened up about the making of their new album I’m All Ears.
The duo, who are made up of Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, unveiled their acclaimed debut I, Gemini in 2016. Both were aged just 17 at the time of the album's release, but went on to have a hugely successful debut campaign.
Speaking to hmv.com about their new album I’m All Ears, Walton revealed the pair wanted to make pop music for the LP, but keep their experimental edges intact.
She said: “We really wanted to focus on making pop music. It didn’t change how we wrote, we’re both committed to experimentation. We used a lot more technology for this record, that definitely changed the writing process.”
To help with the making of the new album, the pair have called in some big-name producers. Among them are The Horrors frontman Faris Badwan and SOPHIE, whose credits include Madonna, Charli XCX and Vince Staples.
Hollingworth said of the producers: “We wanted to work with SOPHIE and she and Faris have been friends for a long time, so it made sense for him to get involved too. Collaborating gave us the chance to broaden what we were doing, we’d never done it before and it definitely opened us up.”
Walton added: “Although they’ve worked on big records, we didn’t feel intimidated by them. We’re not affected by people’ status, we were just excited by their work. They were both very humble people.”
