Los Angeles-based trio Your Grandparents has a way of taking a soulful sound and making it distinctly modern. It’s especially evident in their latest single, “So Damn Fly,” and their golden hour set at The Fader’s digital FORT last weekend, where the group—DaCosta and Jean Carter on vocals, ghettoblasterman on production—effortlessly delivered their signature blend of R&B and hip hop. Today, they dropped the music video for “So Damn Fly”.
In a statement, Your Grandparents shared that they think of the single as “an ode to the unapologetically beautiful, Black, and bold youth of today.” It’s the first single from their debut album slated to release later this year.
