Choir of Young Believers - Rhine Gold (live session)
Choir of Young Believers, led by Jannis Noya Makrigiannis, garnered an imposing number of accolades in their Danish homeland for a debut full-length, 'This Is for the White in Your Eyes'. Rolling Stone said "Founding songwriter Jannis Noya Makrigiannis, manages to sound utterly alone — singing in cold echo with the high, keening melancholy of the Zombies' Colin Blunstone and the Neil Young of ‘A Man Needs a Maid,’" while Under The Radar says "With one foot firmly planted in the realm of orchestral pop, the other dipping its toe into ‘50s pop-song structures, Makrigiannis crafts a Spartan but cinematic world of melody and melancholy." 'This Is For The White In Your Eyes', signalled the arrival of a powerful new talent, possessed of a fully formed vision, arch compositional ingenuity and a tenor to die for. 'While White in Your Eyes' racked up overwhelmingly positive international press, it can practically be seen as a soft launch for Choir of Young Believers’ masterful 'Rhine Gold' out 9th April on Ghostly International.
