There’s no stopping Haley Fohr, the incredible and adventurous Chicago musician behind Circuit des Yeux. After releasing the outstanding In Plain Speech in 2015, which was one of our 15 Album Picks of the Year, she followed it last year with a documentary album, Jackie Lynn, portraying her new outlaw cowboy alter ego.
A new album under her Circuit des Yeux moniker is already in sight and we couldn’t be more excited. Entitled Reaching for Indigo, the record was co-produced by Fohr and Cooper Crain (Cave, Bitchin Bajas). “It references a moment that fell down in the life of Haley Fohr on January 22, 2016”, explains a press release. “Reaching for Indigo adds to definition of Circuit des Yeux, as she realizes her goal of becoming one of the most distinctive voices of this time.
The album arrives on October 20th through Drag City but Circuit des Yeux is already enticing us with ‘Paper Bag’, a daredevil of a single. It comes with an accompanying video by Meg Remy. Press play and prepare to be dazzled.
