Seven weeks ago, Let’s Eat Grandma returned with a glossy bang on Hot Pink, a fresh new single that cheers femininity on through insatiable alt-pop vibes.
Today they’ve revealed their phenomenal second track of 2018, Falling Into Me, and we think it’s even better. It’s still got that sharp new imprint, but has more to love for fans of a more chilled, less restless sound. Plus, at 346 seconds long, it’s a definite epic.
Opening with immense synths, Falling Into Me gently flourishes with its driving drums, escalating to a crescendo, a stretch of long electronic tones, a proclamation of “You got this!” and finally a striking pop break.
Never scared to throw in rarer touches, Let’s Eat Grandma close it all with a brass outro, straight out of the playbook of Vök.
Listen to Falling Into Me on Spotify:
Let’s Eat Grandma are Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, two teens from Norwich that first popped up aged 15 and released their debut album I, Gemini in 2016.
In our Women On Vox feature last week, we called them a “young duo that take the fundamentals of pop and experiment zealously”. Both new singles live up to that description, while adding a touch more polish compared to what had come before.
They’re touring Europe in April, playing eight dates around the UK, mostly in the north. They’ve also announced a big headline show at London’s Heaven on 27 September, and are at The Great Escape in Brighton in May.
Their second album, I’m All Ears, is out on Transgressive on 29 June.
