Recorded live to tape, with no overdubs, on the North Shore of Nova Scotia, Nap Eyesâ€™ quietly contemplative sophomore record refines and elaborates their debut, offering an airier, more spacious second chapter, a bracing blast of bright oceanic sunshine after the moonlit alleys of Whine of the Mystic (PoB-20). But the briny, cold Atlantic roils beneath these exquisite, literate guitar pop songs, posing riddles about friendship, faith, mortality, and self-doubt.
For fans of The Only Ones/Englandâ€™s Glory, The Modern Lovers, The Clean, The Verlaines, The Go-Betweens, Bedhead, and all things Lou Reed. With lyrics, color inner sleeve, and download code.
â€œNap Eyes moves from psych-riffs to astrophysicists; from Rubaiyatic poetry to punctuated bass, in easy fluid motions. Chapmanâ€™s calm, steady voice can be as pained as Bob Dylanâ€™s, and his lyrics can be just as profound.â€ - Noisey
