Minneapolis-based dreampoppers Now, Now opened X Ambassadors at 9:30 Club on Monday, and Paivi got some pix of the band in action.
Now, Now made a splashy return in 2017, releasing new music for the first time in five years. They dropped well-received singles “SGL” and “Yours.” Stereogum hailed the new singles “a welcome and mature return for the band, and a promising indication of what’s to come.”
For their first shows in three years, Now, Now also toured in 2017 with a stop at the All Things Fall Classic in DC on Oct. 8. Writing new songs and touring reenergized the band and the partnership between frontwoman KC Dalager and drummer Bradley Hale.
“I feel more confident and more like myself than I ever have,” said KC. “Our new songs happened so naturally after we stopped overthinking and started going with our instincts. We learned a lot about each other. More than anything we have learned to trust in ourselves.”
Now, Now wrap their tour with X Ambassadors tonight, Feb. 21, in Saint Louis, Missouri. Keep your ears open for more Now, Now soon, soon. Here are some photos of Now Now performing at 9:30 Club on Feb. 19, 2018. All photos copyright and courtesy of Paivi Salonen.
