Now, Now

There’s a lot of patience in Now, Now songs, even when there shouldn’t be. There is a cool hand applied to these stories of youthful indecision and manipulative self-wanting. The songs that singer/guitarist Cacie Dalager, guitarist Jess Abbott and drummer Bradley Hale make are those that leave you smitten, but that was never the problem. You, much like many others, arrive at being smitten way too quickly and that’s mostly the problem for many of the characters that are found here. It’s a look or a smile, a partially obstructed glance that can flip the switch on an imagination that falls all over itself, composing a dream scenario between two people that couldn’t be any more unlikely than it is.
