Trip through the woods to Grandma’s house, and be careful of the shadows.
Coated with sticky sweet danger, Bristol trio Grandmas House’s eponymous debut EP sizzles with all things wild and natural, blazing through the five-track run with elemental power. Lightning fast, three of the songs don’t even touch the two-minute mark; blink, and they’ll just be a ringing in your ears. From the high-street folklore of ‘Pasty’, to the politicised rage of ‘Golden’, the band create songs deeply rooted in the dual mundanity and extravagance of the world we live in, but framed in witchy, earthy sounds. A stand-out moment is the throaty desperation of ‘Feed Me’, which evokes something primordial in its image of the hungover woman laid bare.
The EP feeds the violent frustrations of the past few years through a needlepoint with cutting precision, stitching their songs together with turbulent guitars and incisive lyricism. Jagged and sharp, the band cut through blue skies with their oddly melodic punk explosion, teasing the riotous energy of their live shows and leaving you scouring the internet for their next slot in your nearest boozer. Pumped full of dangerous amounts of adrenaline, Grandmas House have proven themselves as ones to watch.
