Product Description

Even though This Is for the Whites in Your Eyes, the full-length debut by Danish collective Choir of Young Believers, is teeming with instruments voices, pianos, synthesizers, banjos, an orchestra s ransom in strings and French horns it s not the arrangements that dominate so much as the images they conjure. Snow-flecked mountaintops, deserted city streets, ghost-filled churches, a final kiss between estranged lovers this is the emotional terrain trod by Jannis Joya Makrigiannis and his Choir of Young Believers. This Is for the Whites in Your Eyes is an album of orchestral indie-pop, but its artistic scope extends beyond melody and harmony: Choir of Young Believers paint cinematic tableaux, with Jannis cast as the silvery voiced narrator.

Review

Whether or not Denmark's Choir Of Young Believers wants to be compared to Fleet Foxes, the Pixes or Roy Orbison is, well, up to them. --Magnet Magazine

..like hearing Radiohead's Thom Yorke in the middle of a Sixties Roy Orbison single, an effect Makrigiannis repeatedly achieves on the album, which is released here by Ghostly International on August 18th. Let the buzz begin. --David Fricke/Rolling Stone
