Across five tracks - that in true punk fashion - last approximately two-minutes-and-change at most, this self-titled debut EP from Bristol-based Grandmas House sees the powerhouse voice of vocalist Yasmin Berndt coming together with bassist Zoë Zinsmeister and drummer Poppy Dodgson to form a unified front of refreshing wit and blistering rock. While songs like opener ‘Golden’ take directly from the fast, in-your-face tradition that many anti-establishment guitar bands pull unashamedly from, the three-piece are able to breathe fresh air into the style through a refreshing breadth of sounds on this EP. The trio’s unique penchant for charm comes out in full, domineering force on bubbly love letter to queer womanhood ‘Girl’, which melds straight into the Minutemen-like ‘Never Out Of Luck’. Not slowing down for even a second on the magnetism or the mettle, the band round out the EP with the pairing of gritty, hangover inspired ‘Feed Me’, and ‘Pasty’, an ode to a local pasty shop owner, showing that no matter how quirky the subject matter, Grandmas House can write a blindingly good song about it.
