Circuit des Yeux Shares Video for New Song ‘The Manatee’


Circuit des Yeux has released a new song, ‘The Manatee’, which was recorded during the sessions for last year’s -io. The track arrives with an accompanying video directed by Rudy Rubio. Watch and listen below.

“At 4:30 A.M. on February 4th, 2020 a manatee popped out of the sea and stared directly at me,” Circuit des Yeux’s Haley Fohr said in a statement about the new song. “It was a charged 10 seconds. The experience stuck with me so much that I wrote a song about it.”

“The music video (directed by Rudy Rubio) is a depiction of my own kind of manatee,” she added. “I play a wet sea creature trying to make it work in a dry-land society. It is inspired by the scientific understanding that the manatee crawled into the ocean 50,000,000 years ago. The manatee is my reminder that intuition and two legs might be all a person needs to find a more hospitable world – perhaps an undiscovered place to call home.”

Along with the track, Circuit des Yeux has also announced European and North American tour dates for 2022, including a special performance at the Barbican Centre’s Milton Court Concert Hall on April 6. Find the list of dates below.

Last week, Steve Gunn shared a new collaborative EP titled Nakama, which featured Circuit des Yeux’s reinterpretation of ‘Ever Feel That Way’.
