Choir of Young Believers
Choir of Young Believers, led by Jannis Noya Makrigiannis, garnered an imposing number of accolades in their Danish homeland for their debut full-length, This Is for the White in Your Eyes. The group's follow up album, Rhine Gold hews closely to the template of its predecessor, and it expands on it in every way. Choir's collaborative dynamic has imbued their sound with more authority and daring, as the group inhabits a wholly unique space where intimate folk, classic Krautrock, big-sky Americana, avant-garde composition and bombastic theatricality seamlessly serve the same master.
