Now, Now Share Emotive New Song + Video Ahead of North American Tour With Foxing

Minneapolis-based pop band Now, Now has recently dropped a brand new track and video--and it was completely out of the blue. “Enda” is the first piece of music the band has released since their latest full-length, Saved (May 2018). The record has seen boundless praise from both critics and fans alike, and it is no surprise that “Enda” is, too, getting the spotlight it rightfully deserves. The song is highly dynamic, with grand instrumental crescendos counterbalancing vocalist KC Dalager’s sweet and soft-spoken lyrics.

Dalager further explained the title during the song’s debut:

“Enda means heart/center in elvish...The core of something. This song is about hating the things we do to ourselves that are in our control but feel out of our control. Knowing yourself enough to know you’re going to do whatever it is that you are trying to avoid doing. This isn’t about habits or addiction, but more self destructive tendencies in general. I do not want to glamorize the idea of hating yourself, I don’t think that’s a cool thing to do, but this song is definitely injected with self loathing and a little bit of arrogance. Feeling defeated by your own self and not knowing how to stop it. This song makes me feel like I’m at the bottom of a well. But I’m just silently sitting there and have made peace with the fact that I’m not getting out. I do not think that is a healthy place to always be, but I think it’s okay to allow yourself to feel that sometimes in order to get better. I struggle with depression and my sense of self worth as a person outside of making music. So this song is an embodiment of those feelings for me.”

With its ambient and ethereal sound, “Enda” acts as both the extension of Saved we’ve been longing for, and the doorway to something new and magical that Now, Now have on the horizon. You can watch the DIY video, shot and edited by Now, Now’s Brad Hale, for “Enda” below:
