New music from Haley Fohr is always good news. The immeasurably talented and adventurous vocalist, composer, and producer behind Circuit Des Yeux is bringing Jackie Lynn back to life. The project emerged in 2016 with a self-titled documentary album portraying her outlaw cowboy alter ego and now, as a “lady of the road”, she moves the project forward. There is a new album on the way called Jacqueline, which also saw the project turn into a quartet with the addition of Cooper Crain, Rob Frye and Dan Quinlivan of Bitchin Bajas.
The news comes paired with the the first single, ‘Casino Queen’, a killer song with a disco feel, accompanied by a video co-directed by Haley and Krzys Piotrowski. She commented on it:
“‘Casino Queen’ showcases a night in the life of Jacqueline. The song and video follow the letting go of an individual’s underdog mentality, realigning it with the winner’s place. What does it take to refocus one’s internal mirror and become a Casino Queen? All in due time shall we each define ourselves prosperous by way of intuition, self belief, nearby shoulders, a bit of luck, and maybe a wig.”
Here´s the video for ‘Casino Queen’.
