Choir Of Young Believers: Jeg Ser Dig

Choir of Young Believers mastermind Jannis Noya Makrigiannis has an eagerly awaited new full-length coming out February 19; the twelve-song 'Grasque' album is the first since 'Rhine Gold' dropped in 2012.  Three teaser tracks have been unveiled so far of which the most recent is my favorite. "Jeg Ser Dig" [I see you] is six minutes and eight seconds of gorgeous vocals and music: the perfect way to kick off 2016 here on The Nightfly music blog.

The black-white video is decidedly low-key yet strangely effective; the clip was directed by Sara Laub, a graduate of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design.

COYB aka Jannis and friends have a show on January 23 at Bremen Teater in their hometown of Copenhagen. An April 5-13 eight-city tour starts in Zürich and ends in Berlin. April 22 there's one date in Helsinki and three gigs have so far been scheduled at Danish venues for the last week of April and first week of May (see Facebook link below for details.)
