Norwich band Let's Eat Grandma performed on BBC Two's Later... with Jools Holland and the internet didn't quite seem to know what to make of them.

Described by one viewer on social media as a combination of 'Bjork and Tim Burton', Norwich musical duo, Let's Eat Grandma made their television debut on Tuesday evening, appearing on the BBC Two show, Later... with Jools Holland.

The talented twosome, Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, both aged only 17, performed their single Deep Six Textbook, to mixed responses from viewers at home, who took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Many were impressed by the atmospheric performance, which featured big hair, bold lipstick and lots of emotion.

Twitter user Andy Coates said 'quite enjoyed Let's Eat Grandma despite feeling a bit disturbed by them', while @BMWavesBlog commented 'I wish I had their fearlessness when I was their age. So cool.'

The television appearance follows a hectic year for the multi-instumentalists, who have already taken to the stage to wow crowds at the Latitude Festival near Southwold, Festival By The Sea in Margate and the Pop Montreal Festival in Canada.
