Nap Eyes Are "So Tired" on New Tune

It comes from the Halifax group's 'Snapshot of a Beginner' album

Halifax guitar unit Nap Eyes are set to follow up I'm Bad Now with a new record called Snapshot of a Beginner. We've already heard them take down the Zuck on the album's lead single, and now they've got another track for us to sink into.

The new song is called "So Tired," and rather than try to explain it ourselves, we'll let Nap Eyes frontman Nigel Chapman do the talking:

The "So Tired" refrain marks a slight shift in perspective and its meaning is twofold. For one, I get frustrated sometimes by what the world seems to require for success at a given task (for example, polished songwriting, coherent and understandable communication), so part of this is just me venting on this subject. Sometimes I would rather flow with free writing than try to box songs into rehearsed, many-times-repeated containers.
Second, at times I find myself wishing people would not hold so many preconceptions about the things in this world a given person might try to communicate. Most of us, myself included, usually assume we already know a lot — even about things we've spent very little time thinking about — and because of this attitude, people are often predisposed to misunderstand new ideas, even when they're communicated in straightforward and coherent ways. But there's no doubt, an idea won't ever get through until there's someone around to listen to it.

Listen to "So Tired" below, where you'll also find Nap Eyes' upcoming tour dates.
