Following on from the release of their highly-praised studio album 'Two Ribbons' earlier this year, Let's Eat Grandma have now returned to deliver a brand new score.
The new soundtrack for 'The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself', a Netflix thriller series based on the Half Bad books by Sally Green, was entirely composed by the duo, and is available to stream now.
Speaking about the new release, Let's East Grandma said, "Working on the OST for The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself has certainly been a very informative process and a wonderful new experience which has shaped and broadened the way we write and think about music. We’re always looking for ways to move forward musically, and we think being part of a bigger project with lots of other people all working creatively in different ways has been so valuable and inspiring".
While series director and executive producer Colm McCarthy added, “Let’s Eat Grandma were the first track on the mood playlist that I put together for the show. Joe Barton was a big fan too and we reached out to them while still in the early stages of casting. Even though they had never done a score before it just felt like they would do something original and authentic. Something about the score coming from such young voices feels really cool in this story about the transition from childhood to adulthood. Rosa and Jenny collaborated brilliantly, giving us an amazing score. Emotional, scary, heart-pounding, epic and personal, it is strange and evocative and a huge part of the unique identity of our show. They sculpted with organic, acoustic elements and grungy electronica to make something really magical. It has the DNA of the band running through it but also feels so intrinsic to our world.”
