    BC,NR frontman Isaac Wood told The Quietus about Sunglasses: “It’s written from the perspective of a particular voice which is inside a lot of people; a voice that can feel incredibly pessimistic and arrogant. One thing that I think is good about the song is something that struck me in a similar way about Father John Misty. I think the first time a lot of people hear ‘Sunglasses’ they find it grating and abrasive, and not just in the sonic way. It’s actually voiced in quite an irritating way with these quite stupid inflections which are so whiny, affected and performative, it’s quite over the top. I get quite irritated listening to it so I can imagine a lot of other people will as well.”

    “It describes a series of events, loosely connected, all yet to happen,” says frontman Isaac Wood. “The song was intended to be highly inspirational. The lyrics are sometimes concerned with symbols of wealth or affluence but they are not written from a critical or even external position.”
