Video of the Moment #2184: Let’s Eat Grandma

Norwich teenage duo Let’s Eat Grandma released their debut album ‘I, Gemini’, and they’ve already garnered attention on both sides of the Atlantic. Best friends Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth have already proved in their off-kilter past singles including ‘Deep Six Textbook’ and ‘Eat Shiitake Mushrooms’ that they’re really out there. Latest single taken from ‘I, Gemini’, the cheekily titled ‘Sax in the City’, continues close behind in their footsteps.

The video for the song, too, shows off the pair’s penchant for not following the pack. Director Ben Sommers, who also directed the ‘Eat Shiitake Mushrooms’ promo, had this to say about the making of this new visual:

We intended to keep the video quite lighthearted and playful, with Jenny and Rosa as babies crawling through the busy city landscape – we also wanted to make a subtle comment on social and political issues – the outcome a slight nod to Orwell’s 1984 and how true his novel is seemingly becoming. The baby aspect adds something quite bizarre to the video, I think it echoes the eclectic and psychedelic nature of Let’s Eat Grandma’s sound – but also gestures something worryingly poignant in respect to the world that future generations are growing up in.

The Let’s Eat Grandma girls themselves had this to say about the video: “Just us at our favourite place, wearing our favourite colour, doing what we do best – this is the most real video of Let’s Eat Grandma yet. PS Look out for the rat.” Ha! Watch it below. ‘I, Gemini’ is now available from Transgressive Records.
