The beating heart of Nova Scotia’s nouveau guitar-pop, Nap Eyes, has well outgrown expectations with their third release, I’m Bad Now. The collection is ambitious but polished and personal — it’ll break your heart, but your toes won’t stop tapping.
Every track is unique, but the subtle homage to bygone Maritime folk melodies is apparent throughout the album. “Follow Me Down” plays like taking a ferry to Cape Breton Island in the rain, and “Dull Me Line” is like a stroll down the boardwalk at Martinique Beach.
