Without a doubt a choir of sound, the group that calls Copenhagen, Denmark, home is in fact the work of Jannis Noya Makrigiannis, who records and performs either solo or with as many as eight musicians. Between his chilly Nordic full-length debut, This Is For the White in Your Eyes, and recent win of the Danish Grammy’s “Best New Act,” Makrigiannis is quickly warming hearts of the young and old.
Intending to expand the indie pop to a more orchestral sound, Denmark’s based Choir Of Young Believers brings the classical sound with a prominent folk and the tradition of the Nordic culture, building a trademark through the way Makrigiannis and band make music, perform on stage, and the deliver obscure subjects in the lyrics. This Is For the White In Your Eyes shapes the sound of violin, cello, piano, horn, percussion, guitar, bass ad drums to modernize the classical sound that defines Choir Of Young Believers.
Choir of Young Believers presented an amazing show for KEXP’s live boardcasting at SXSW Music Festival, where the band performed “Action/Reaction“, “God Damn Your Fingers“, “Under the Moon” and “Why Must It Always Be This Way” to support the release of their new album.
