Circuit Des Yeux Debuts "Vanishing" Video

Circuit des Yeux AKA: Haley Fohr has released a new video for her single “Vanishing.” The track is off her forthcoming release and debut for Matador Records -io, available October 22nd. Circuit des Yeux has also announced European and North American tour dates for 2022. The live band, consisting of Fohr (vocals, guitar, sampler), Ashley Guerrero (drums), Andrew Scott Young (contrabass) and Whitney Johnson (viola), will be joined on select dates by a string section. This includes a special performance at the Barbican Centre’s Milton Court Concert Hall accompanied by a quintet of soloists from the London Contemporary Orchestra on April 6th.

Circuit des Yeux AKA: Haley Fohr on “Vanishing:”

Vanishing is an account of climate change and loss through the final stage of grief. In this video I embody our evolving consciousness toward Earth and its health by representing four characters. Lemonade Lady is the evasive optimist who is unwilling to acknowledge her changing surroundings. Prepared Weather Person is the anxious prepper; ready for the worst and isolated by fear. The Mortal Sufferer gets blown away in a field and serves as evidence that us corporeal beings are at the behest of our environment. And Worm Girl personifies the stoic reality that all things human undoubtedly decompose in time.

The album was put to tape last fall by Cooper Crain at Chicago’s Electrical Audio studio and mixed by Marta Salogni (Bjork, Holly Herndon) with Fohr acting as arranger and producer. Written in the wake of personal loss and recorded in the midst of the pandemic, -io maps a geography of grief – a place where “everything is ending all the time.”
