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.
