Nap Eyes go adorably medieval in “I’m Bad” video

From the criminally underrated Canadian band’s new album, I’m Bad Now.

February 26, 2018

Nap Eyes's third album is called I'm Bad Now, and today FADER is debuting the almost-title track. "You're a hated son and your disappointment haunts everyone," Nigel Chapman sings to himself. "You're so dumb." LOOOL relax buddy, you're actually leading one of the most satisfying rock bands making music anymore, with a wit and sound both relaxing and quick.

Beyond an on-trend medieval aesthetic, I love the Charlie Brown face that Chapman makes at the end of the video, directed by fellow Halifax artist Seth Smith, when he sees that someone else thinks of him even worse. If anything, we're all bad now.

I'm Bad Now is a must-buy for spring, out March 9 via Paradise of Bachelors (U.S.), You’ve Changed (Canada) and Jagjaguwar (the rest of the world).
