SPOTLIGHT: Let’s Eat Grandma: Hall Of Mirrors
From the city of Norwich in the UK, please meet Let’s Eat Grandma. The duo of Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, are back with their first new music since the excellently reviewed I’m All Ears, released in 2018. Three years on comes a new single, “Hall of Mirrors.” A shimmering synthy, avant-disco-brushed gem, I really dig it a lot. It’s on the playlist or just check out the dazzlingly colorful video directed by El Hardwick, which I’ve posted below.
“I wanted to use the setting of a fairground at night to describe the dizziness, intensity and excitement of being with a woman I had strong feelings for, and the hall of mirrors as a metaphor for discovering and exploring parts of myself that I was bringing to life,” Rosa says. “In some way it’s reflective and almost secretive, journeying through confusing and difficult emotions, but I also wanted ‘Hall of Mirrors’ to be a euphoric song that conveys clarity, confidence, and ultimately joy.”
