TRANSXMAS18

A truly divisive artist, Sophie's ascension to pop stardom has taken a focused mindset and unwavering execution. Six years on from "Nothing More To Say" and following production work with Madonna, Charlie XCX and Vince Staples, Glasgow-raised, LA-based Sophie Xeon is back with nine tracks that skirt between majestic, auto-tuned mega-ballads, monstrous glitch-pop crushers and the usual hyped up, chipmunk chatter that's graced previous work.

Taking the PC Music rocket ship (one she practically built and engineered herself...) even further than previously intended, the hyper-reality of both her personal imagine, impressive body of work and dazzling catalogue of music videos feeds back into itself perfectly, reinforcing the star-like qualities of this leftfield anti-pop princess.

She recently debuted a live show at London's Heaven nightclub, which set the press and LGBTQ+ worlds alright through its ingenious creativity, provocative nature and of course, amazingly boundary-pushing music.

Opening with the Disney-friendly, auto-tuned blue sky ballad "It's Okay To Cry" before flying into the BDSM-draped aggro-electro punisher "Ponyboy" (please do check the video for this one folks - ed), and followed by the poignant "Faceshopping", it's an arresting opening triptych which sets the tone for the rest of the album - endorphin-rushing, neon-hued adventure pop for the queer and open minded! A masterpiece make no mistake.

Matt says: One of the most important things to happen to pop music in the last decade in my humble opinion.

FORMAT INFORMATION

2xColoured LP includes MP3 Download Code.

Let’s Eat Grandma return with their newest edition, ‘I’m All Ears’ which an even greater revelation than Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth’s globally acclaimed debut, I, Gemini. The second act from the British teenage vocalists, multi-instrumentalists and songwriters, is the most startling, infectious, innovative and thrilling record you’ll hear this year. It is alive with furious pop, unapologetic grandeur, intimate ballads; with loops, Logic, outrageous 80s drum solos, as well as production from David Wrench (The XX/Frank Ocean/Caribou), Sophie (famed for her own material and work with Madonna, Charli XCX and Vince Staples) and Faris Badwan (The Horrors). Their sound has developed a stronger electronic tone while remaining their upbeat young vocals throughout. It’s an album that cements Let’s Eat Grandma as one of the most creative and exciting bands in the world right now.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Let's eat Grandma enlist the help of some pretty stellar electronc talents on this album to boyster their already incredible breadth of talents. Grooving demi-soul, swinging synthpop and dancey percussive drive. A stunning collection, and a perfect starting point for anyone uninitiated with one of the most interesting bands around today. Ace.
