Weyes Blood and Circuit Des Yeux Announce Auckland Dates

Tuesday 8th November, 2016 12:39PM

Two stunning solo artists Weyes Blood and Circuit Des Yeux are joining forces for their debut New Zealand appearances in January. Recently, New York-based artist Weyes Blood (aka Natalie Mering) has been making waves with her new album Front Row Seat To Earth, a beautiful nine-song offering which was unveiled in October and takes the idea of folk music and turns it on its head and pushes it into the future. Meanwhile, compatriot Circuit Des Yeux (aka Haley Fohr) has recently revealed a concept album under the cocaine-dealing alter ego Jackie Lynn to favourable reviews. Here are the details of their upcoming shows...


Weyes Blood and Circuit Des Yeux

Tuesday 24th January, Aotea Square, Auckland (midday show)
Wednesday 25th January, Whammy Bar, Auckland

Two very special artists are visiting Auckland for two very special joint shows this January!

Weyes Blood (aka Natalie Mering) sings folk music, but not as you know it. Following notable collaborations with the likes of Ariel Pink and Drugdealer, Weyes Blood’s fourth album Front Row Seat To Earth comes as a heart-wrenching delight, sounding at once out of time and urgently in-the-now. Guaranteed to be in 2016 Top Tens all over the show.

Chicago resident Haley Fohr’s striking voice - an impassioned baritone - is her music’s centerpiece and guiding force. Most recently, Fohr traded her Circuit Des Yeux persona to inhabit the tragic (albeit imaginary) story of cocaine-dealer Jackie Lynn, with a dark, hypnotic, “self-titled” concept album.

"Circuit Des Yeux are currently one of the best live acts in the world - no matter what form they appear in" - Quietus
