Genre-bending alternative artist grandma has returned with a hypnotically transcendent new single, “I Met God Online”. Perfectly blending 1970’s rock with modern lo-fi sounds, the track chronicles the nonlinear nature of love in the digital age—failed talking stages, psychosexual pining, miscommunication and vibe shifts— intertwined with a fascinating strain of theism.
“”I Met God Online” is about people’s fascination with internet esotericism,” says grandma. “A meditation on how someone’s life and internet presence can amorphously become someone else’s religion, obsession, or gospel.”
In opposition to its lyrical content, the song’s music video, co-directed by grandma and Skylar Newman of the brand Praying, is populated with remarkably “normal” people fresh out of a stock image catalog. Watch the video now below.
