Back from the dead and with far too much on their minds, Young Mothers returns with “They Were Right”, a sunny-sounding rumination on the stupidity of consumer capitalism, depression-fueled isolation, and analysis-paralysis. The Phoenix, AZ group has a pedigree of sorts- songwriter Zach Toporek is an erstwhile member of The Through & Through Gospel Review and Diners; drummer Jason Roedl is formerly of Mergence notoriety; bassist Jess Pruitt plays in The Bittersweet Way and was previously a member of Field Trip. Together, they perform Toporek’s clever and accessible pop songs with obvious enthusiasm and hardly any cool.
