Circuit des Yeux’s Haley Fohr shared the following statement on the new song and video:
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.
Circuit des Yeux’s -io is due for release on October 22 via Matador. ‘Vanishing’ follows the previously unveiled singles ‘Dogma’ and ‘Sculpting the Exodus’, both of which landed on our Best New Songs segment.
