Circuit Des Yeux

Circuit Des Yeux







Vocalist, composer, and producer Haley Fohr has been Circuit des Yeux since she was eighteen years old. Born in the year of the Dragon in Indiana’s own “Star City” — that’s Lafayette, IN — she released records regularly over the past decades; four full-length albums, along with several mini-albums and singles. Meanwhile, she has played shows everywhere, touring all the time. She has been based in Chicago since 2012.

All this was endeavored to be done out of necessity, in order for Haley to be Circuit des Yeux and for Circuit des Yeux to be Haley.

The records and shows have been done in primarily DIY fashion, as a means of navigating the world, genuflecting with Sagittarian energy. Circuit des Yeux reflects from a singular angle, looking deeply, at times unblinkingly, at connections and collisions of the cerebral and the physical, with a sense of colloquial grit and an equally opaque transcendent spirit in her words and her music.

Circuit des Yeux is an ardent collaborator, numbering Glenn BrancaLee RanaldoBill OrcuttBitchin Bajas & Bonny ‘Prince’ Billy and Olivia Block among her fellow performers.

Circuit des Yeux has received enervated and affirmative commentary from The Quietus, NPR, New York TimesChicago ReaderBrooklyn Rail, Pitchfork and The Wire, among many others. They have all made interesting speculations on her brand of entertainment. All we can tell you in addition is that she has a four-octave range — at least on days when it isn’t raining.

The fifth Circuit des Yeux album, Reaching for Indigo is co-produced by Haley Fohr and Cooper Crain.



Selected press

“The music is immediate and enveloping, and because of her rich, stirring voice, it’s sometimes even bracing. But once you’re ensnared, it becomes quietly mesmerizing” – Pitchfork

“Circuit des Yeux has recently become a band of great centrifugal force, led by [Haley Fohr’s] deep, commanding voice” – The New York Times
