Flying Horseman Short Info

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.

Early 2017 Flying Horseman were artist in residence at deSingel where they've worked for seven weeks straight on a brand new project called "Rooms / Ruins". Their residence ended with a live performance at deSingel which was followed by 7 more concerts all over Belgium & The Netherlands. In the summer of 2017, they took "Rooms / Ruins" to the studio and recorded all of the material into the band's fifth full-album. The first single, and first new Flying Horseman music in over 2 years, "Reverie" was released by Unday Records in November 2017 on a limited 7” vinyl and digital, with a beautiful remix by Milan W. as a B-side.

Rooms / Ruins, due for January 26, is a capricious, vibrant and strange affair that will send you inwards before catapulting you in to space. It houses many colours and flavours, many contrasting faces. It is focused and purposeful, as much as it is dreamy and ambivalent. It might be a sonic comment on a hard to grasp reality or an increasingly out of control society, or it might be another break up album (though one with decidedly philosophical tendencies). It might not be perfectly suited for your next dinner party, even though it is rather tasty. When trying to approach it, it might seem evasive. But later on, it might call you back, asking you to sit down and listen closely, once again.
