    An album which is deluged in melancholy of the sweetest kind, 'Threads' undoubtedly deserves your ears.

    Dig deeper and beguiling melodies emerge while the intriguingly sinister edge to Cacie Dalager's lyrics is exposed. [25 Aug 2012, p.53]

    Threads is compelling. [Apr 2012, p.98]

    The only sleight against it is that it's fairly derivative‚Äďas much as the band members might deny it, their fast, female vocal-driven sound is, at times, a little reminiscent of trendy pop punk acts like Paramore.

    Its debut had a rawness that this album lacks. Nonetheless, these songs, especially "Dead Oaks" and the gorgeous "School Friends" comprise a winning collection of emotional songs about relationships, romantic and otherwise. [#40, p.78]

    Even though it can be repetitive at times, it still possesses enough standout moments to keep it from fading into oblivion.

    Although the Now, Now's album - "Threads" does not present any new solutions, this CD is very nice in reception. The vocal fuse with light melodies and in effect - listening to songs such as "But I Do" or "School Friends" you can get little dreamy . So it'll be no lethargic through whole album, band also presents the vibrant songs - "Magnet", "Prehistoric". Full Review »

    Cacie Dalager has wonderful vocals in this album. It can be a catchy song such as "Dead Oaks" to a dreamy song such as "School Friends" to a strong rock beat such as "Thread". This album should be a proud achievement of Now, Now.
