“‘Hot Pink’ is about the misconceptions of femininity and masculinity and the power of embracing both of them. It’s about self-expression as well as appreciation for an underrated colour” say Let’s Eat Grandma about their colourful new track.
Together, teenage multi-instrumentalists Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth create “exhilarating blasts of fervently obnoxious noise” to turn gender politics upside down – and their new video for ‘Hot Pink’ sees them tearing through the city doing just that.
The track was co-produced by SOPHIE & Faris Badwan and mixed by David Wrench, and released through Transgressive Records last week, with the accompanying video directed by Balan Evans. Speaking about the footage, Let’s Eat Grandma have said: “We’re trying to navigate through a city where people’s perceptions of reality are becoming more and more distorted in the fear that we’ll end up the same way.”
After the cult success of their debut album, I, Gemini, it’s great to see this pair back on track with an attention-grabbing new single. Following a headline show at Lightbox in Vauxhall, London on March 8th (which is now sold out), Let’s Eat Grandma will perform a run of UK and European headline tour dates throughout April. Watch the video for ‘Hot Pink below, and follow the band on Facebook for more updates.
