Jackie Lynn is the fictional alter ego of singer-songwriter Haley Fohr who is also known for her indie folk project Circuit des Yeux. The debut album told the story of Jackie’s (fictional) life to date. On ‘Jacqueline’, their upcoming album on Drag City, Jackie Lynn returns and her continuing story is brought to us by Fohr, Cooper Crain, Rob Frye and Dan Quinlivan of Bitchin Bajas.
The album is the follow-up to 2016’s widely acclaimed self-titled debut (released on Thrill Jockey), and is preceded by the driving and hypnotic opening song ‘Casino Queen’. Following on from the gritty, quicksilver nocturnal high of ‘Jacqueline’, the new record departs from Circuit des Yeux’s typical work, with minimalist arrangements incorporating acoustic guitars, synthesisers, and drum machines, as well as more straightforward songwriting.
