“Whether or not Denmark’s Choir Of Young Believers wants to be compared to Fleet Foxes, Pixies or Roy Orbison is, well, up to them.” – Magnet Magazine “Like Fleet Foxes, COYB do the baroque harmonic pop jams thing, and their songs have the same quasi-religious feel, with a similarly solemn, churchy atmosphere.” –The Guardian “…the high, keening melancholy of the Zombies’ Colin Bluntstone and the Neil Young of “A Man Needs a Maid,” amid [a] slow-motion army of guitars, piano, strings and brass… Let the buzz begin.” – Rolling Stone 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 indiepop, but its artistic scope extends beyond melody and harmony: Choir of Young Believers paint cinematic tableaux, with Jannis cast as the silveryvoiced narrator.
