Following on from recent comeback single “Hall of Mirrors”, British duo Let’s Eat Grandma have announced their third album: it’s called Two Ribbons and will come out on April 8 through Transgressive. They have also shared the title track, with Jenny Hollingworth saying:
“Two Ribbons is a song I wrote to, and about, two of the closest people in my life, and how my relationships with them shifted over time through loss and life changes. It touches on the isolating experience of grieving, our powerlessness in the face of death, and the visceral emotions of grief.“
It’s set to be the closer of the album, which makes sense, as it’s a slowburning acoustic confessional – a far cry from the polychromatic synth-pop Let’s Eat Grandma is mostly known for. It’s really a showcase for Hollingworth’s vocal and lyrical talents, as she displays utter vulnerability and honesty about a situation that’s audibly painful to her – and yet it still remains a universally relatable song. Rosa Walton’s inputs can’t be discounted, as her subtly backing vocals and myriad of synth hues colour the background, giving “Two Ribbons” an even more vivid atmosphere.
