In their first recordings released since the critically acclaimed long-player I'm Bad Now, Haligonian heroes Nap Eyes sail an autumnal wind of regret and longing. "Have You Seen the Light" exposes an inscape of illumination and revelation all too rare today. Hate begets hate, and light begets light. Too Bad?

Have you seen the light?
It’s dawning on you
Do you know what it’s like
To hate things because you’re scared they’ll hate you?

"I've Always Known You Care" evinces the affections we do not reveal, as the fall leaves fall, with echoes of Hackamore Brick in the spindly guitar lines. Nigel ends the song with a promise for the future: "Oh yeah, you can count on me."

I have always known you care
Maybe it doesn’t seem like it
The leaves are turning in the air
And you know I hate to lose,
I can’t stand to win

Danika Vandersteen once again made the arresting cover art.

Nap Eyes joins Cloud Nothings on a brief Western tour, beginning November 2, 2018.

Track Name: Have You Seen the Light
Have you seen the light?
It’s dawning on you
Do you know what it’s like
To hate things because you’re scared they’ll hate you?
That’s your God-given right
Whatever that means, you’ll do what you want to do
But it isn’t out of spite
If I offer you a word or two
When you say it feels paralyzing
To think that you might be the one who’s wrong
Never realizing
Until the cold eyes of judgment fall on you
So tenderly prizing
All the things you’re scared they’re going to take away from you
All because they can’t read your mind
Even though you try to be kind
So you’d think it’d be easier than it is
Said you had a lot to think of, well you know
You’re just the same as me
Sometimes I wish you could read my mind
Then you’d see what I mean. . .
Track Name: I've Always Known You Care
I have always known you care
Maybe it doesn’t seem like it
The leaves are turning in the air
And you know I hate to lose,
I can’t stand to win
Sometimes I see things that aren’t there
Draw back and shut my feelings in
Another disappointed stare
As I project the judgment
But my friend you’ve known me for a long time
You’ve seen my best and worst a hundred times
And when there’s nothing you can do
To change my mind
You’re always patient, you know I’m not blind
I’ll realize
Oh yeah, you can count on me
