"And who are these kids sleeping in my bed?"
Now, Now Every Children. Sounds like something you would read on the front of a Japanese pencil case. These three very small young people and the fourth seemingly gigantic young person hail from Minnesota, not Japan, and look like sad, angsty, emo teens. That's exactly what their music sounds like too! Just kidding. Kind of.
The first thing that came to my mind upon listening to "Not One, But Two" was "Eisley... Eisley, Eisley, Eisley..." Lead singer Cacie Dalager's voice has a striking resemblance to that of Sherri Dupree. Not only that, but Now, Now Every Children and Eisley also share a sweet sadness in their sound. Would've been perfect for a vs. post, but seeing as how Eisley is so 2005, I will now name Now, Now Every Children as the new Eisley.
Now, Now are fledglings, for sure. Their latest EP, In The City, is out now, but a full-length album is yet to be released. They're still only touring around their little Minnesota and lack their own website. But that's the beauty of small bands. They have little means and little publicity, but they're getting there. Here's to getting them to SXSW next spring!
