This single hits an especially personal note as on "Single and Ready to Linger" Naked Naps takes a look back at the falling out that follows a friendship and a crush and how to learn from it. We've all had those quickly fading relationships, the ones that never seem to make any sense but you try hard to rationalize anyways. This track puts those wonderings to song, pointing out all the qualities in one another that could be to blame, wishing time could be reversed to change the situation and then trying to find the good in it anyway. The single comes from an album due out later this year, but the band is playing at Hopscotch Festival this week. From the desperation and emotion present in vocalist Catie Yerkes' cries to twinkling chimes and ferocious guitar, this track is one sure to induce some feelings.
