Hard to calculate the excitement I’m feeling towards the release of the forthcoming Circuit des Yeux album, -io, coming October 22 via Matador Records. Our first taste of the record, “Dogma”, definitely felt like a teaser of some large iceberg dwelling beneath our proverbial consciousness, whereas the follow-up “Sculpting The Exodus” is a hulking behemoth, with dramatic strings, thumping percussion and bone-tingling vocals from Haley Fohr. Music that strips away flesh and stabs feeling right into our spinal cord. If you don’t feel any emotion while hearing Fohr’s voice… I’ve got bigger questions for you. The experience of a CdY album is usually an experience best consumed whole, so I’m really looking forward to seeing how this momentous piece fits into the sculpture that is -io.
-io is out October 22 via Matador. Pre-order the album HERE.
