- Yuko -

Yuko is the talented band around Kristof Deneijs. In his musical output he is always exploring boundaries and looking to create captivating music while avoiding the obvious. Yuko equals introvert music, inventive, surreal and melancholic. The band released their second album ‘As If We Were Dancing’ on Unday Records in 2011. After a break the foursome is now working on the follow-up, which will be released in spring 2014. No surprise here: it will definitely surprise you.

- Flying Horseman -

Flying Horseman is the band of singer-songwriter Bert Dockx. This selection of Antwerp’s top musicians creates bloodcurdlingly beautiful albums and live shows. Think in terms of menacing post-folk and dark blues, with the emotional depth and soul-lacerating atmosphere Music is rarely given such a keen edge.
Flying Horseman’s second album ‘Twist’, recorded at Koen Gisen’s studio, was released on Unday in 2012. It doesn’t happen too often that an album gets this much ecstatic feedback. Both press and fans were absolutely blown away by this powerful recording. After releasing the magnificent ‘Navigate’ EP, they treated their steadily growing audience to a new album; a diptych entitled ‘City Same City. It did not only end up in numerous year end lists, but also established Flying Horseman as one of the most exciting bands around.
Dockx is currently working on a new solo project that will lead the same shivers down your spine, this time with lyrics in his native language Dutch.

- Imaginary Family -

Imaginary Family is the moniker of Joanna Isselé.
Just a few years ago, Joanna was given an acoustic guitar as a present. She started writing songs, about delinquent cowboys, lonely neighbors and bird watchers. Being left-handed, she taught herself to play the right-handed guitar upside down. It defines her peculiar sound, which is delicate, unadorned and moving.
Imaginary Family’s wonderful debut 5-track EP ‘Hidden’ came out in Autumn 2012 with help from Yuko’s frontman Kristof Deneijs. Her single ‘The Bird Watcher’ came with a beautiful animated video, directed by Dries Bastiaensen. She is working on a debut album.

- Maya's Moving Castle -

Maya's Moving Castle is the creation of a girl who grew up on a small farm, digging up insects and collecting butterflies. She started out playing an old cello at home. When she moved to the city, she became a multi-instrumentalist and started writing songs in an attic. Driven by her imagination and experimentation, she created her own fantasy world. Meanwhile, the attic became a studio, and solo turned into a full-blown band. A full-length record is set for a release on October 29th. Produced by Stefan Bracke (Raveyards, ex-The Subs) and François De Meyer (Raveyards, Villa), Maya’s Moving Castle released her wonderful self-titled debut album on Unday Records end of 2012.

- Blackie & the Oohoos -

Blackie & the Oohoos is the band around Loesje and Martha Maieu, two sisters with a knack for twisted and perplexing tunes.
Last year the band released their second album ‘Song For Two Sisters’, produced by indie superstar Pascal Deweze. The record is suffused with a tense and dark, otherworldly atmosphere. The psychedelic dream pop and spooky folk is reminiscent of their debut album, but the songs and lyrics have a more mature, eccentric and distilled quality...

- Trixie Whitley -

Trixie Whitley is an American musician with Belgian roots.  Her stunning vocal chords and impressive stage presence have earned her acclaim as a great talent worldwide, leading to collaborations with living legends: Robert Plant, Marianne Faithful, Joe Henry and Marc Ribot, to name a few. Trixie was also the lead singer of Black Dub, Daniel Lanois’ all-star band. 
The expectations for her debut album, which hit the stores in February 2013, were sky high, but Trixie lived up to them seemingly easily . Fans and press unanimously laud the album for its authenticity and idiosyncrasy, for the soul, the blues, the truth in each note.

- Ian Clement -

Ian Clement is no stranger, as he is part of Belgian rock trio Wallace Vanborn. His solo work is something entirely different and far more intimate though – consider it to be his Dr. Jekyll contrary to the Mr. Hyde he unleashes in Wallace Vanborn.

‘Drawing Daggers’ was recorded during a six month session in the midst of the woods in the south of Belgium with producer Peter Obbels and features contributions by Karel De Backer (Novastar, Mangold), Wouter Van Belle (Dead Man Ray), Jon Birdsong (Beck) and Lara Chedraoui (Intergalactic Lovers). Fans of singer-songwriters like Mark Lanegan, Dan Auerbach and Edward Sharpe will fall head over heels for Ian’s intriguing story-telling.

‘Drawing Daggers’, released on April 1th 2013, combines true craftsmanship with lots of soul, authenticity and a sincere heart – a record that draws the listener into a dark yet warm world.

- I Will, I Swear -

It doesn’t happen too often that a song grabs you by the throat in seconds. That’s exactly what happened to us when we heard I Will, I Swear’s track Long Days for the first time. This intriguing boy / girl duo operates from Gent, Belgium and they have just finished recording their first songs together. Delicate tunes drenched in gloom with vocals that will leave anyone silent. Debut single “Long Days/Sleep” was released April 2013. Their remarkable sound caught the attention of many blogs all over the world. I Will, I Swear’s strongly anticipated debut is expected later in 2014.

- Dans Dans -

The extraordinary trio Dans Dans are about to release their second album I/II, produced by Koen Gisen, April 2013. From garage jazz, psychedelic blues and ecstatic noir soundtracks to spacey rock-‘n-roll: the labels that get thrown at Dans Dans give a pretty good indication of their eclecticism. We’re not even trying to name it.
Just like their much acclaimed eponymous debut album, the new record will not only feature their own compositions, but also covers, this time of Tom Waits, Robert Wyatt, David Bowie, Morricone, Mingus, Ornette Coleman and Sun Ra.

- Hydrogen Sea -

Hydrogen Sea = multi-instrumentalist PJ Seaux and singer Birsen Uçar. PJ plays guitar, triggers the wavy synths and drops the (gentle) beats. All at once. Birsen complements their distinctive sound with her ethereal vocals and moony lyrics. Two viral tracks was all this enchanting duo needed to convince national radio stations and influential blogs. At this moment they are working with Koen Gisen on their debut EP, which is due in spring.
