Choir Of Young Believers – “Claustrophobia (Peter Antlers Remix)”

Jannis Noy Makrigiannis’s Choir Of Young Believers landed here last summer with the billowing, widescreen orchestral pomp of Next Summer,” and extend the lifecycle of their This Is For The White In Your Eyes LP with a three-track release of “Claustrophobia.” It comes packing the album track alongside its remix by the Antlers’ Peter Silberman, and Sian Alice Group’s take on another album track, “Wintertime Love.” For COYB, Jannis’s tenor is a selling point as much as it is a point of reference (see: Robin Pecknold), and the Antlers’ redo of “Claustrophobia” preserves it wholesale save some minor outro manipulations, modifying the spacious original only to reflect its titular intent, clouding the air with warping synths and glitched beats. Makes sense.
