    Choir of Young Believers are not, in fact, a choir of religious boys, but rather Danish Jannis Noya Makrigiannis's gospel influenced, grand indiepop vision. But don't let the religious suggestions throw you off. Choir of Young Believers only take on the most beautiful, soft sacred echoes of the gospel choir and infuse them into their dark tinged orchestra pop melodies. This is as solemn as it is precious, spilling light from stained glass windows, lonesome from cold Scandinavian grounds.

    Jannis's wide traveling background and his varied performances - at times as a minimal duo with guitar or piano with a cello, or with full bands playing every breed of instrument - shows his voice's strength and solitary beauty in his recorded songs. He is backed by the majestic strings and network of inspired instruments building a path toward a holy, indie melodic bliss.

    Anticipate their debut album, This Is for the White in Your Eyes (Ghostly International), to be released August 18th for the full effect of these graceful songs that landed the Choir of Young Believers nominations for six Danish Grammies, and the award of "Best New Act." - Laura Yan
