Girls girls girls

After Imaginary Family’s debut single a few weeks ago (available on iTunes here), it’s time for more girls on Unday Records! We’d like to welcome two new acts to the Unday family, who will both be releasing some exciting music after the summer.

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. Produced by Stefan Bracke (Raveyards, ex-The Subs) and François De Meyer (Raveyards, Villa) and accompanied by musicians Nele De Gussem (vocals, guitar), Ben Brunin (bass, synth) and Simon Segers (drums). Maya’s Moving Castle’s first single “Next Life” will be released in September!

Blackie & the Oohoos is the band around Loesje and Martha Maieu, two sisters with a knack for twisted and perplexing tunes.
They have just finished recording “Song for Two Sisters”, their second album, which 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… It’s going to be an amazing album and we can’t wait to let you hear it. Hang in there, it’s dropping this fall.

Unday presents Imaginary Family

We at Unday are delighted to present you Imaginary Family’s first single. If you’re into minimalist and captivating folk, this debut might well be your treat for today.

Imaginary Family is the moniker of Joanna Isselé. A few years ago, Joanna was given an acoustic guitar as a present. She started writing songs, about delinquent cowboys, lonely neighbours 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.

Please visit to check out the video to her first single "The Bird Watcher". Temporarily you'll be able to find a free download of the track there too.

Feel free to follow Imaginary Family on Facebook or Twitter. Her first EP is set for a September release through Unday / N.E.W.S.

Out now: Flying Horseman 'Twist'

You can now check out 'Twist' on Soundcloud or Spotify and buy the album on CD or on iTunes.
As of the 21st of April (Record Store Day) 'Twist' will also be available as a beautiful handnumbered gatefold 2LP including one etched vinyl side and the CD as an extra bonus. Limited to 300 copies so don't miss it!

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.
