Your Grandparents make music that hints to the nostalgia of previous decades without feeling dated. The Los Angeles trio — composed of vocalists Jean Carter and DaCosta and producer ghettoblasterman — isn’t cemented to just one genre, either. The childhood friends officially founded the group in 2014 using the moniker “Your Grandparents” as a nod to the elders who introduced them to classic artists and inspired their musical tastes. Originally, the trio released rap music, but their work quickly grew to incorporate the various genres that have inspired their musicianship. When asked about the albums that have inspired them lately, the men rattle off a variety of projects including D’Angelo’s Voodoo, Erykah Badu’s Baduism, The Fugees’ The Score and Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon. Today, Your Grandparents release music that nods to funk, soul, hip-hop, rock, blues and other genres. Inspired by events of the past two years, Your Grandparents’ upcoming project is an abstract depiction exploring the relationship between who they are on and off screen. Contrasting the theme of their debut album Thru My Window, the trio’s latest work takes more of a fictional and theatrical approach to its storytelling rather than a journaled account of real life events. From lighthearted and high energy to heavy hitting, slow dragging grooves, expect their new songs to project the colors of a full range of human emotion. Leading with their first single, “Somebody Told Me”, the band recruits fellow Los Angeles Neo-Soul/Hip-Hop musician Amindi to tell a story of deceit, or so we think.
