Choir of Young Believers

“Melancholy” is a good word to begin a discussion of Choir of Young Believers’ sophomore album Rhine Gold…but it doesn’t tell the whole story. Expanding on the theatrical tendencies of its reverb-drenched debut This Is For the White in Your Eyes, the darks are darker, but there are also lighter lights. “Paint New Horrors” breaks from the album’s orchestral pop tendencies for a swinging 1970s-flavored refrain where leadman Jannis Noya Makrigiannis’ mournful voice doesn’t just resonate—it soars.
