The music video for British, indie-pop duo, Let’s Eat Grandma’s newest single “Happy New Year” recently dropped. Comprised of lifelong best friends Rosa and Jenny, the group’s song is an upbeat, indie anthem celebrating friendship and all the highs and lows that come with it. It was inspired by the pair’s own relationship and the growth they’ve both had as individuals over the course of their friendship.
The song acts as the opener to Let’s Eat Grandma’s highly anticipated third studio album, Two Ribbons, dropping this April. In the track’s music video, we see both Rosa and Jenny dueling in a tennis match before hugging it out after the match is over. This is very symbolic of the duo’s own bond over the years and how they’ve stayed true to the friendship after all this time. They both are donning stylish Don Vutch suits during the video, Rosa delivering serves in a fuschia color while Jenny plays opposite in a sleek, black one as she defends sporting a bloody nose.
In a statement, Rosa expanded on the video and song:
“I wrote “Happy New Year after a breakdown between (Jenny Hollingworth and me] that lasted for a long period of time, to communicate to her how important she is to me and how our bond and care for each other goes much deeper than this difficult time. I used the setting of New Year as both an opportunity for reflection, looking back nostalgically through childhood memories that we shared, and to represent the beginning of a fresh chapter for us. I’d been struggling to come to terms with the fact that our relationship had changed, but as the song and time progresses I come to accept that it couldn’t stay the way it was when we were kids forever, and start to view it as a positive thing– because now we have been able to grow into our own individual selves.”
