Choir Boy announce new album and share lead single and video “Complainer”


Choir Boy have announced details of their new album Gathering Swans’ for release on May 8 via Dais Records. Full of heartbreak and gently steeped in pop nostalgia, the band push their unmistakable sound to a new level.  Gathering Swans’ paints a bright, hopeful, and deeply heartfelt image with a little humour along the way.  

Choir BoyAdam Klopp explains about the lead single Complainer’: “While many of our earlier songs serve as flowery lamentations of loss and grief, ‘Complainer’ snarkily examines the self-absorption of sadness. The opening line ‘Oh my life’ was something I privately uttered while stewing over daily anxieties. It became comical to me that I would express my self-pity like that, in earnest, when my struggles seemed so relatively tame. The song continues,” It’s a phrase so funny when it’s spoken so sincere. But it’s not that bad, I’ve never really had it worse. I’m just a complainer.” ‘Complainer’ multi-tasks as a pop song and a reminder to keep my privilege in check.”

‘Gathering Swans’ will be released on May 8th via DAIS. Pre-order it at
