The third single from Choir of Young Believers ’ debut full-length This Is for the White in Your Eyes is a relatively minimal endeavor from the notoriously maximalist Danish collective—but when it comes to the Choir, big things usually come in small packages. A simple oom-pah thump on the bass drum, a cloud of ominous mellotron strings, and Jannis Noya Makrigiannis’ baleful moan is all ‘Claustrophobia’ needs to make its mark—that, and an eerily soaring hook that could turn blood to ice water. The single includes a remix from The Antlers (Frenchkiss) and a cover by Sian Alice Group (The Social Registry).
Choir of Young Believers are currently on tour in the US, with dates in LA, NYC, and in Austin for SXSW. Check all the dates here.
