Choir Of Young Believers
THIS IS FOR THE WHITE IN YOUR EYES (LP)
Reissue of the debut album from Choir Of Young Believers, available on vinyl outside of Scandinavia for the first time.
The song "Hollow Talk" was used as theme song for international hit TV show "The Bridge". Even though This Is for the White 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 White 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.
