Equal parts shambling and sophisticated, Nap Eyes keep one eye on the dirt and one trained on the firmament, inhabiting a skewed world where odes to NASA and the Earth’s magnetic field coexist easily with songs about insomnia and drinking too much. Recording live to tape with no overdubs, Nap Eyes call to mind The Clean, The Verlaines, The Modern Lovers, and all things Lou Reed, without ever sounding very much like anything else happening today.

Music Video: Nap Eyes – ‘Roll It’

Music Video: Nap Eyes – ‘Roll It’

Nap Eyes conclude the interdimensional puppet adventure; tour with Car Seat Headrest

Maybe you’ve been wondering what ever happened to puppet Nap Eyes? Had Nigel poisoned his friends with his green science potion? And what about when he drank the potion himself? Was he able to transcend his dimensional bounds? Maybe you yourself have experimented with science, or drugs? Maybe you’ve let your own puppet spirit run wild through quiet neighbourhoods at dusk looking for an angry fix, or a starry dynamo, or a conveniently located fresh baked pie?

Maybe you don’t know what I’m talking about and should watch the Nap Eyes official video for ‘Click Clack’:

and then the brand new EXCITING CONCLUSION in ‘Roll It’:
