Let’s Eat Grandma have shared new single ‘Give Me A Reason’.
The duo released their ambitious second album ‘Two Ribbons’ a few months back, receiving widespread praise. An emotionally involved experience, the record dealt with grief and survival, in a frank and often extremely moving way.
Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth reconvene to share a Deluxe Edition of the record, including some unheard material. New song ‘Give Me A Reason’ is part of this, and its pared back, low key style seems to allow the raw emotion of the lyric to come to the fore.

Let’s Eat Grandma comment…
“Back in Autumn 2019 we went to Sheringham on the Norfolk coast and stayed in an AirBNB together, where we wrote ‘Give Me A Reason’. Sheringham is a small seaside town and there was barely anyone there at that time of year, it was pretty rainy and cold, but we went for walks and sat by the sea and talked a lot.”
“I think you can really hear the surroundings seeping into the song; it’s one of our most emotionally raw songs, but it felt very cathartic to write because of it. We were both writing about different things, but tying them together in a way which felt like it came together really naturally. We wrote a lot of the songs on ‘Two Ribbons’ individually after this, so it feels nice to release something that we wrote completely together.”
The creativity doesn’t stop there: Let’s Eat Grandma have also composed a brand new score for upcoming Netflix series, The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself, which hits streaming on October 28th.
You can also catch ’em live – Let’s Eat Grandma are touring in October.
