- Jan Verstraeten -

Jan Verstraeten must be one of the most common names in Belgium. You would never associate it with de Disneyesque strings, cinematic indie pop and lo-fi bossanova that make up visual artist and musician Jan Verstraeten’s intruiging debut EP ‘Cheap Dreams’.
He suddenly arose out of nowhere, from a small room in a grey provincial town, to be more precise. That’s were Jan Verstraeten worked on his debut for years.

- The Bony King of Nowhere -

Over three years after the release of his latest record, Belgian singer-songwriter Bram Vanparys finally returns with breathtaking new music. His songwriting has often drawn comparisons to the music of Bob Dylan and Neil Young, but the new record ‘Silent Days’ reveals that Vanparys has been on a journey into new musical territory.
‘Silent Days’, his first album on Unday Records,  is expected to be released in September on Unday Records.

- Bert Dockx -

With Transit, his new solo record, the prolific Bert Dockx has added a compelling new facet to his ever-expanding, deeply personal musical universe. While in the past decade Bert’s main projects – Flying Horseman and Dans Dans – have grown into two of the most productive and distinguishable bands in Belgium, he has always kept playing solo-shows on the side. Shows at which, along with his own compositions, he has occasionally offered adventurous interpretations of a variety of iconic songs. Transit contains the most remarkable of these interpretations in a naked and raw, yet subtly hallucinogenic production by Dockx’ faithful accomplice Koen Gisen. The album was recorded live (and captured on camera by Philippe Werkers) in Gisen’s intimate studio in Ghent, Belgium.

- Faces on TV-

Faces On TV is the creation of Jasper Maekelberg, a multi-instrumentalist and producer who’s intelligent and adventurous psychedelic pop has caused a stir in his native Belgium.
The celebrated sound-architect released his eagerly-anticipated debut album ‘Night Funeral’ on April 20 via Unday Records. A polychromatic symphony of magnetic synths, shuffling rhythms and exotic sounds, echoes of Air, Alt-J and Portishead can be heard across the album, resulting in a multicoloured fusion of sparkling percussion, crafting beats and tempting vocals. Tracks like recent single ‘The Image of Boy Wonder’, conjure up a psychedelic dream-world of bass-heavy trip hop and eerie ambience, backed by epicurean female vocals, resulting in an alluring nugget of poptronica, while new single ‘Dancing After All’, is a rich mix of fizzing electronics that tells a tale of debauchery, twisted love and broken emotions, a familiar theme across the album.

- Ivy Falls-

Ivy Falls is Fien Deman’s band. In her own universe, pastel pink pop and subtle electronics, go side by side. ‘Mean Girls’, Ivy Falls’ first EP, strolls through the flower meadow in which bands such as Deptford Goth, Wet & Sylvan Esso flourish. Ivy Falls is Fien Deman’s jump into the unknown. It’s her first solo project, after giving people chills with the orchestral pop of her first band I will, I swear and after collaborations with Illuminine and Satin Jackets. Her debut EP ‘Mean Girls’ came out November 2017. And her single ‘Fight Me’ came out August 6. 'Fight Me' is a minimalist pop song stirring up a melancholic fight. It's a personal ode to the introverted underdog.

- Millionaire -

After having played guitar for Evil Superstars and dEUS, Tim Vanhamel released ‘Outside The Simian Flock’, his first Millionaire album in 2001. Muse and Queens of the Stone Age were fans and took the band on the road. Josh Homme, frontman of Queens of the Stone Age, briefly teamed up with Vanhamel for Eagles of Death Metal and also produced the second Millionaire record, ‘Paradisiac’ (2005). After that, Vanhamel made his first solo record 'Welcome to the Blue House’ (2008), and founded, among other things, Broken Glass Heroes and Eat Lions. He also joined Magnus and The Hickey Underworld as a guitarist. 2017 marked the triumphant return of Millionaire, with the release of ‘Sciencing’, the highly acclaimed new Millionaire record, after a 12 year hiatus!

- Intergalactic Lovers -

Breathe in. Breathe out. It’s the simplest thing, yet the most vital, universal of tasks. It’s here you’ll find Intergalactic Lovers – the Belgian indie-rock group find beauty in the everyday, the most profound meaning in something others would dismiss. For each of the four members music is a vital, underlying part of their lives. ‘Exhale’, their third album to date, was their first to be released on Unday records, in September 2017.

- Tamino -

Tamino-Amir Moharam Fouad, Tamino in short. The grandson of Egyptian actor/musician Moharam Fouad won Studio Brussel’s “De Nieuwe Lichting” and impresses with the briliant single ‘Habibi’, a song that envelops itself in a mist of melancholy and gloom. Tamino’s phenomenal voice, ranging from a deep croon to a towering falsetto, goes right to the bone. His debut EP is out now on Unday Records.

- Het Zesde Metaal -

The band around Wannes Cappelle debuted on Unday in 2014 with their third album ‘Nie Voe Kinders’. The album went gold in no time. Wannes sings in dialect, though oddly enough this never imposes any boundaries on the band’s universal music, for there is truth in each syllable and every note. Their fourth album ‘Calais’ from 2016 marked the introduction of sizzling electronics and lush string arrangements. First single ‘Naar De Wuppe’ became an instant classic. The band won the award for best album and best author/composer at the 2017 Music Industry Awards. The listeners of Radio 1 named their song Ploegsteert ‘Best Belgian One year later they have played over a 100 shows at the most renowned clubs and the biggest festivals. 

- 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.
Her debut album ‘Fourth Corner’ from 2013 went gold in Belgium in a matter of days. and has reached double platinum status by now.

Trixie is currently working on a new record together with Run The Jewels collaborator Little Shalimar.

- Flying Horseman -

Flying Horseman is the 5 piece band around singer-songwriter Bert Dockx. Flying Horseman’s second album ‘Twist’ was released on Unday in 2012, the beginning of a beautiful love story. We have released everything Bert has produced ever since, as Strand, with Dans Dans and with Flying Horseman. The 4th Horseman record on Unday is entitled ‘Rooms/Ruins’ and was released in January 2018. It got raving reviews all over the place, the club tour that followed sold out in most venues, this band is only getting better and better. 

- Dans Dans -

The extraordinary trio Dans Dans are impossible to pin down. 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. Featuring Fred – Lyenn – Jacques (Lyenn, Lanegan band), Steven Cassiers (Dez Mona) and Bert Dockx (Flying Horseman), each of them irreplacable in their own right. Their improvised compostions are inspired and unique, their live performances no less than sensational.
Dans Dans have released three exceptional albums on Unday: ‘I/II’ in 2013, ‘3’ in 2014 and their latest beauty ‘Sand’ in 2016.

- 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. Their debut ep ‘Court The Dark’ (2014) opened the door to the blogosphere and national radio success. On their first full length album ‘In Dreams’ from 2016 they reconcile the electronic with the acoustic in eleven stunning pop songs but these compositions are entrancing and gloomy. The duo has evolved into a 5 piece live band and is working on exciting new music in this new incarnation.

- Madensuyu -

On their new album Current (Unday Records, February 2018), Madensuyu manage to reassert and to surprise at the same time. Its ten tracks are reminiscent of the duo’s entrancing thoroughness and intensity, but the band also introduces defining new elements, most notably in the use of the piano as the driving melodic force. After a four year hiatus since their last album Stabat Mater, this new record confirms Madensuyu’s status as one of the most imaginative and unique bands around. Current is their first release on Unday Records. Madensuyu are YLODE (5-string, dynamic midi pedal, keys, vocals) and PJ (drums, vocals).
