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 that characterises Flying Horseman. Music is rarely given such a keen edge.
Now Flying Horseman have released their second studio album 'Twist'. For this album the band worked with producer Koen Gisen, who has also worked with bands such as the Bony King of Nowhere.
Twist has become a dark romantic album, sultry and ghost-ridden, the ultimate soundtrack of the night. It builds on the atmospheric roots rock of the previous album, Wild Eyes, but its patterning is lush and its orchestration subtle by comparison.
Influences such as Joy Division, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Bill Callahan, Talk Talk and The Velvet Underground come to mind and illustrate the cloth this band is cut from.
Debut album Wild Eyes has introduced this intriguing band to huge critical acclaim both in Belgium and abroad. Twist represents another bold throw of the dice.
It's been a while since we were in touch, so, hi! And we're hope you're doing fine.
After Yuko - remember last year's album "As If We Were Dancing" - we signed a new band to Unday; Flying Horseman.
We'd like to invite you to check out their forthcoming album "Twist", and its first single "Back Where I Started". Or maybe witness them live during one of their shows?
'As If We Were Dancing' is the anticipated second full album by Belgian band Yuko. It's the follow up to their acclaimed debut album ‘For Times When Ears Are Sore’ (2008).
Their debut gained many excellent reviews, with features in Humo, De Morgen, De Standaard, RifRaf, Focus Knack, VIF Focus, Le Soir and many more! The album was awarded as one of the ‘Duyster essentials’ at the end of the year.
Yuko established a matching reputation as a live band with concerts at Eurosonic, Pukkelpop , Crossing Border and Spot Festival (DK), support act for M83, Under Byen, Ladytron and Jason Lytle (Grandaddy). They played major venues in Benelux (AB, Botanique, Melkweg, 013 etc…).
The new album “As If We Were Dancing” was recorded at La Chapelle by Bob Hermans (who previously cooperated with Jonsi and Yeasayer) and shows a more poppy and more catchy sound than its predecessor. Artwork is by UK based David Foldvari who previously worked for Beck, Bullion…
‘As if we were Dancing’ is out now on CD, iTunes and gatefold vinyl including the CD.
