We caught up Rosa and Jenny, the Norwich girls who make up Lets Eat Grandma. It is like our two yearly check with them, as we last interviewed them if 2016 and previously in 2014. How their careers have grown over that time and another great example of the talent that comes from our Fine City.

It’s been two years since your I, Gemini, your first album, what have you guys been doing during this time? Rosa: I guess a lot of of touring and festivals in the first year or so, and then writing the next album. Jenny: We’ve been quite busy in the last couple of years. I can imagine! The new singles have a much clubbier vibe than I, Gemini does. Where did this influence come from? Rosa: I think we just wanted people to dance! We’ve been to a lot of gigs that have been really fun… and I guess just expanding and writing something new.

We wanted to try a bit more to write pop music. If I understand correctly, these new, poppier songs were co-produced by SOPHIE and Faris Badwan. What was it like to work with them? Jenny: So the songs that we did with them were Hot Pink and It’s Not Just Me. I think it was a really new experience for us because we’ve never collaborated writing with anyone before and we didn’t for any of the other tracks on the album either. We learnt quite a lot from them - we learnt new ways to write and we all had different strengths in the studio. I think we managed to create something quite


unique from that. I read that Hot Pink explores notions of femininity and masculinity. How influential is gender theory to your music, in general? Rosa: It’s something that we think about a lot, so it’s natural that it’s going to come out, I guess. Hot Pink is about defying those stereotypes and celebrating femininity a bit more. Jenny: I think those things come out in our music whether we’re even intending to write about them, just because that’s who we are as people. For example, I remember us being asked at one point, how we embrace our femininity on stage and I thought,
