Watch Circuit des Yeux’s new video for ‘Falling Blonde’

We can’t put down Circuit des Yeux‘s Reaching For Indigo, a timeless favourite record that made it to our 15 Album Picks last year. Haley Fohr, the phenomenal and adventurous musician behind Circuit des Yeux, has unveiled its fourth single, ‘Falling Blonde’, and an accompanying video directed and starring New Zealand based video artist Veronica Crockford-Pound. Here it is.

In other wonderful related news, Circuit des Yeux will unleash an expanded eight-piece ensemble featuring members of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra for a special one-off performance at Utrecht’s Le Guess Who? Festival this November. In addition to presenting an augmented version of Reaching For Indigo, Fohr’s performance will also include the first live rendition of previously unreleased music from the album’s sessions. With an initial spectacular line-up already in sight, and Circuit des Yeux as a huge highlight, we can’t wait for November to come.

Circuit des Yeux teases upcoming album with new single ‘Black Fly’

We’re eagerly waiting for the release of Reaching for Indigo, the new album from Circuit des Yeux. Haley Fohr, the incredible and adventurous Chicago musician behind the project, had already enticed us with ‘Paper Bag’. With just a month to go until the album is out, she has shared a new single, ‘Black Fly’. In the works for many years with many collaborators, ‘Black Fly’ is a soul-stirring opus of a song. Fohr describes it as “a 7 minute meditation on self invention & embracement of our parasitic nature”. We can’t stop playing it and Reaching for Indigo can’t come soon enough!

Reaching for Indigo is out on October 20th through Drag City.

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.
