Clementine Was Right is the songwriting project of poet and fiction writer Mike Young. Chronicling years of travels and uprootings, the music revs and spikes and sways through hook-smeared bootgaze and cosmic scoot, harmonizing and storytelling.

After releasing three books of poems and stories in the early 2010s (with praise from VICE, BOMB, The Believer, and others), Mike moved to New Mexico in 2016 and started this project with fifteen years of songs and a talented crew of fellow wanderers.

In September 2021, Clementine Was Right recorded their second LP, Can't Get Right With the Darkness, at Memphis Magnetic in Memphis, TN with Scott McEwen (Elvis Costello, Robert Plant, Hank Williams III, Rosie Flores). Gathering a large cast of collaborators from Arkansas to Asheville to Hawaii, the new record is both grizzlier and more anthemic, weeping and laughing while the fire jumps the river.

Adobe & Teardrops said: “exquisite storytelling … one of those albums that helps you expand on how you perceive the world, be more observant, and take note of things you might’ve passed by.” The band has been featured on Gimme Country, AltCountry.NL, Deeper Roots Radio, Puttin' on Airs in Memphis, and elsewhere. And the band has shared bills with Pearl Charles, Dave Dondero, Sadie Dupuis (of Speedy Ortiz), Nat Baldwin (of Dirty Projectors), and many others.
