Bored at My Grandmas House Announces Debut Album ‘Show & Tell’, Shares New Single

    Bored at My Grandamas House – the project of Leeds-based singer-songwriter Amber Strawbridge – has announced her debut album, Show & Tell. The follow-up to 2021’s Sometimes I Forget You’re Human Too comes out June 7 via CLUE Records/EMI North. It includes the previously released single ‘Inhibitions’, and the title track is out today. Check it out along with the album cover and tracklist below.

    ‘“Show & Tell’ is quite a tongue-in-cheek song about me being the opposite of an open book and all the little specific things about me that I sometimes wish were different,” Strawbridge explained in a statement. “Overall it’s about me being a guarded person and fearing the possibility of having to be vulnerable and realising that vulnerability is actually a beautiful thing and something i shouldn’t be so scared of.”

    Discussing the album, she said:

    The main overall theme of this album is connection. Connection with myself, connection with the world and connection to the people around me who I love. This album is for me first and foremost and was a way for me to internally process.

    The origin of these tracks all stem from me wanting to understand these connections and process my emotions surrounding them. The album covers topics such as the power of queer love, humanity and its ‘delusions of grandeur’, reflection and purpose.

    It would be unwise to say that I haven’t developed and changed a lot since my EP. I’ve experienced more, questioned more, felt more and allowed myself to be vulnerable more – which I hope translates throughout the Album.
