Formed in 2010. Portland Post Punk.
Choir Boy
“Choir Boy” was what the kids called singer/songwriter Adam
Klopp in his early teens when he fronted punk cover bands in
Cleveland, Ohio. An intended insult, the label seemed fair and
fitting in a way, given Klopp’s religious upbringing and angelic
voice. After high school, Adam left Ohio for college in Utah.
While his career as a student would prove short-lived, he
integrated into Provo and SLC’s underground music and art
scene, left religion behind, and called his new band “Choir Boy”.
“It seemed funny to me as sort of a comical reclamation of the
mocking title I received from “punk” peers as a teen. While
serving as a weird reflection of my childhood and musical
heritage.”
Since Choir Boy’s gorgeous debut LP on Team Love records in
2016, the dream-pop outfit has gained a cult following online
and in underground circles. Adam’s stunning vocal range,
layered compositions, and heartbreaking melodies are backed
by musical partner Chaz Costello on bass (Fossil Arms, Sculpture
Club, Human Leather) - and along with a rotating cast of players,
create the perfect blend of nostalgia-laced romantic pop music
we’ve been waiting years to hear.
Dais is proud to announce the new single “Sunday Light” b/w
“Madeline”. The new songs are a continuation of the strong
compositions and songwriting evident on last year’s album, and
a showcase of Choir Boy’s musical talent.
“Sunday Light” is a coming of age story, and touches on the
frightening aspects of religion, ritual, and secrecy through the
eyes of someone discovering the truth behind the door for the
first time. Strong vocals soar throughout the composition,
reaching dizzying heights and diving into low and commanding
tones, backed with strings and reverbed keys – it makes for
majestic, but haunted nostalgia.
“Madeline” is the quintessential B-side heartbreaker – “…a
pessimistic commentary to an accumulative experience with
love and romance. Ranging from memories of young love to
hopelessness in adult relationships”, this ballad impresses with
beautiful and delicate arrangements, the slow motion
soundtrack for a hopeless young romance.
