Circuit des Yeux has shared the second single from her upcoming LP, -io. ‘Sculpting the Exodus’ follows lead offering ‘Dogma’, which landed on our Best New Songs list. It arrives today alongside a music video shot in Chicago during the same session that yielded the album’s cover image, for which Haley Fohr trained with stunt coordinator Talin Chat (The Mandalorian) to perform a series of 5-7’ free-falls on camera. Watch and listen below.
Fohr had this to say about ‘Sculpting the Exodus’ in a statement:
What is Sculpting the Exodus?
It is devotion. It is the well.
It is my grandmother going into hospice, writhing in pain.
It is reality exploding on an island made of sand. It is depression and the isolation of deep grief.
I was trapped in a choir of myself with nothing to grab onto but echoes of past selves.
It obliterated my heart until the only working parts of me were the appendages furthest from my mind.
A few notes here
A couple notes there…
The fingers were working when nothing else could. And I was fantasizing of leaving like I always do…
-io, Circuit des Yeux’s debut for Matador, is due out October 22.
