“Sink,” the trip-hoppy B-side to Let’s Eat Grandma’s experimental debut single, “Deep Six Textbook,” sounds nothing like “Deep Six” and is every bit as good.
Lush strings of high-pitched notes mesh with a funky gothic synth line that oozes the song forward. Rosa and Jenny rap-sing broad, mysterious lines like “To retain the blame is a heavy weight/ I need your help to unblock it …. under the influence of the norm.”
Later, “And I just didn’t know what to say” is repeated and warped as it echoes away amid mounting feedback. The duo, Rosa and Jenny, share vocals and sound as close as sisters.
The beautiful oddness of “Sink” will only feed the fire ahead of their debut album, which is still months away.
Let’s Eat Grandma, recently signed teen instrumentalists Rosa and Jenny, are from Norwich, England. They’re already selling out shows in England and will play at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton on May 19 – 21.
Let’s Eat Grandma is on Transgressive, with new music set for release Sept. 2.
