Los Angeles genre-melding three piece Your Grandparents are back with a sexy new track ‘Sunlight.’
‘Sunlight’ is the trio’s first offering of 2021, coming off the heels of a series of sublime singles like ‘So Damn Fly’, and ‘Tomorrow.’ Your Grandparents swagger over a moody, bedroom-y beat. It’ll have you feeling some sorta way.
To celebrate the release of ‘Sunlight’, we send Your Grandparents few burning Get To Know questions. Check out what they had to say below.
Listen to ‘Sunlight’ by Your Grandparents:
How did your artist name come about?
Ghettoblasterman: It was a joke at first. We were in a group chat with our big bro Q and I threw out “grandpa gang” just to be funny. Jean took that and turned it into Your Grandparents and made it iconic. It pays homage to all of the people who came before us, the people that put us on and passed down the music and art we love so much. Now it’s out turn to make something timeless to pass down.

Jean: “Pretty good”
Tell us about a few of your tracks; their titles and what they’re about?
Simply put, ‘Sunlight’ is about waking up with someone you love, and ‘Red Room’ is about letting go of all the bullshit and having fun. ‘Past Love’ is about running into an old flame with your new shorty and seeing how it pants out. ‘Intoxicated’ is another favourite it’s just about how liquor may affect your good time haha.
