While it's easy to see where they're going with this, something's not quite right. What the Young Moderns do well is fold nostalgic '80s new wave memes into a clear affinity for late-'70s pop-rock from the likes of Elvis Costello and Joe Jackson. The result is loyal, but spotty execution and unconvincing vocals may limit its appeal to kitsch.
