Circuit Des Yeux Reveals Video For Latest Single, Lithonia

Chicago-based Circuit Des Yeux (aka Haley Fohr) just finished a string of dates with Bill Callahan and Jason Lescalleet in support of Overdue, her latest album co-released by Ba Da Bing Records and Fohr’s own Lewis + Lynn Records. Now she presents her earnest music video for Lithonia, the first single from this striking record which premiered on Rookie Magazine.

The video, directed by Cory Popp and edited by Haley Fohr herself, is full of jarring and intimate close-ups. Natural light illuminates a small, minimally decorated apartment while Fohr lays in bed, changes T-shirts and cuts her bangs. Lithonia’s make-up of finely wrought string arrangements and the full-voiced Fohr provide the contrast of magical reality and the tension of struggle. Themes of winter, sexual tension, repetition and coming of age come to mind easily. It’s all as personal and atmospheric as Overdue itself and, beneath the surface, there’s a subtle violence that begs attention.

Circuit Des Yeux will be touring throughout 2014 with a European tour with Bill Callahan in February and Austin Psych Fest in May. You can catch Circuit Des Yeux live on the following dates in 2014:
