The lyrics of the track 'Sedated' mention ‘isolation and dreams’ and those are exactly the sounds being emanated from Choir of Young Believers’ new album, 'Rhine Gold'. The first track especially, exudes ethereal solitude, where the vocals float alone into the melancholic soundscape, and it's only after three minutes that a beat kicks in, bringing it back down to earth.
Choir of Young Believers was conceived in the mind of Jannis Noya Makrigiannis but now there are up to eight musicians and friends who join him live on stage to create the theatrical pop music that the Danish group are soon to be so well known for. Echoing the likes of Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes, their new album which can be streamed here will be officially released on April 9.
