Pittsburgh five-piece The Zells have released a new song called ‘Truther Uncle’. Out now via Crafted Sounds, it marks the group’s first new music since 2019’s No More Heroes EP. RJ Gordon (Titus Andronicus, Baked) produced the track, which was recorded at Adam Reich’s secondBase Studios in Brooklyn and mastered by Amar Lal (Big Ups). Give it a listen below.
“It’s a song about that feeling when you’re talking to someone who really ‘gets it’ and then, in the casual comfort of conversation, it’s revealed that you are actually worlds apart,” the band’s Frank DiNardo explained in a statement. “We’ve all had that moment where you realize you are being perceived as a crank, and we all know at least one person whose worldview is completely incompatible with your read on reality. You can share a lot of the same analysis about the problems in the world with people, but some people’s explanations for why those problems exist just don’t make sense. That disconnect doesn’t make you angry, it’s just disheartening and sad to know how confused and hurt people are.”
