Indie rock duo Now, Now
are back in the spotlight at long last. With excitement building for Saved
- their first album in six (!) years - the pair dropped by Baeble Music HQ to treat us to a charming performance, including two new songs and one neat little throwback. They also told us a little about their origins, their songwriting process and what they've been up to in the years since that last record.
It's a long time since Now, Now released Threads
back in 2012, and even longer since KC Dalager and Brad Hale met back in their high school marching band. It's been quite a journey to this point for the group, not without its trials and tribulations, so it's great to see the duo finally making the kind of music that really reflects their identity as Now, Now. "SGL", the first single from Saved
, has gone down as one of the best tracks of 2017 and hype for the new album is steadily building.
Now, Now's three-song set bridges the six-year gap between albums with performances of "SGL", "Yours", and "But I Do" - opening with two of their new songs, before finishing up with a nostalgic reminder of Threads
. Hearing the new music, it does feel like something of a rebirth for Now, Now. They've got a newfound confidence in their songwriting ability, after some struggles during their six year absence, and the new synth-laden sound is a breath of fresh air. You really get the sense that Saved
could be a breakthrough moment for the pair.
will be released on May 18th, but in the meantime you can get your Now Now fix by checking out the duo's Baeble session now. We're very excited about their return, and you should be too.
