Nap Eyes’ premiered the hilarious new video for “Click Clack”, one of the best loved songs on their latest album Thought Rock Fish Scale (out now on Paradise of Bachelors), which features some Weird Science meets Paul McCarthy meets the Muppets meets Vincent Price vibes. Abject puppets enhanced by science! Here’s what songwriter and singer Nigel Chapman has to say about it:
“The ‘Click Clack’ video was made by our friends Allison Higgins (of Halifax’s Old and Weird) and Jordan Minkoff (of Victoria’s Slam Dunk). In it I play a scientist working from home who discovers that my bandmates Seamus, Josh, and Brad have inexplicably become puppets and are getting up to some mischief in the puppet world. I do my best to remedy the situation using my knowledge of the arcane and alchemical, but as often happens in life, looking for the simple fix only seems to make things more complicated. . .”
Nap Eyes recently completed a successful UK tour which included shows at The Great Escape and a slot with Cian Nugent at London’s Moth Club.
Recorded live to tape, with no overdubs, on the North Shore of Nova Scotia, Nap Eyes’ quietly contemplative sophomore record Thought Rock Fish Scale refines and elaborates their debut, offering an airier, more spacious second chapter, a bracing blast of bright oceanic sunshine after the moonlit alleys of their debut Whine of the Mystic. But the briny, cold Atlantic roils beneath these exquisite, literate guitar pop songs, posing uneasy riddles about friendship, faith, mortality, and self-doubt.
