Tancred (solo project of Now, Now guitarist Jess Abbott) will be releasing its self-titled debut on...
Don't let their name fool you, Now, Now Every Children might be kind of short, and kind of adorable, but their music is of the larger-than-life variety.
Back before Now, Now Every Children was just a name, then-children Cacie Dalager (vocals, guitar) and Brad Hale (drums) started writing songs together after marching band practice in Blaine, Minn. Their first work of art well-wished a graduating friend from high school, but their musical queues were much more than greeting card salutations. Dalager and Hale began recording demos in their suburban basements, posting them on MySpace and gaining fans before they even played a show.
After signing to Afternoon Records in 2007, Now, Now Every Children released two EPs to critical acclaim: "Not One, But Two" and "In the City." Their lo-fi recordings in combination with Dalager's heartbreaking voice championed the attention of some of the harshest critics of all, their peers, earning a spot as "Band of the Month" on Paramorfans.com.
"Cars," Now, Now Every Children's first full-length album is all about life on the highway. Rerecording 3 of the singles off their first two EPs plus 7 more brand new tracks are a series of poignant moments written by Dalager and Hale, mostly over the last year. Since then they've ventured outside their Midwestern routes and played a select west coast tour, as well as shared the stage with some of their idols including Mates of State and the Rosebuds.
"Cars" is available online November 8th and in stores December 9th on Afternoon Records.
