Do not be repelled by Now, Now’s emo past-life, as I once foolishly was: The Minnesota duo’s Saved was one of the best albums of 2018. Standout tracks “SGL” (an abbreviation for “shotgun lover”) and “AZ” (like the hot state) are understated pop masterpieces, with KC Dalager’s voice breezing over catchy synth melodies and Brad Hale’s adrenaline-charged drumbeats. It’s the perfect music for angsty scream-singing with the windows down (so I guess Now Now’s still a little emo after all).
