Following the release of “Mark Zuckerberg” and “So Tired,” Halifax outfit Nap Eyes has shared a video for their new track “Mystery Calling.”
“This is another improvised-origin song,” frontman Nigel Chapman explains. “On one level it’s basically a description of my homebody ways, and it’s also about the way our mundane routines can seem to pull us away from what I’m referring to as ‘Mystery’ in the song – that is, away from the discovery and creation that seem to be more valuable and important activities in themselves, despite being deemed superficially ‘non-practical.’ Now, this irritation and sense of being drawn away from what’s important is probably mostly illusory.”
The accompanying colourful, Antoine Lahaie-directed clip is inspired by movies like Blade Runner and Under The Skin.

Their forthcoming album Snapshot Of A Beginner is set for release on March 27th.
