The Belgium band was a solo project of guitarist Bert Dockx at first, he started in 2008. Alfredo Bravo, Loesje Maieu, Martha Maieu, Mattias Cré (Milan Warmoeskerken) joined the group later and a strong band was formed. They got nominated in 2013 for two Music Industry Awards, and Dockx was nominated himself for ‘Best Musician’ in 2013 and 2014! After performances at Pukkelpop and Gent Jazz Festival, it’s Paard’s turn! We can’t wait.
After releasing four albums, it was time for something different. Rooms/Ruins needed to outstand. The work process was changed. The band didn’t record the album at first, before going on tour. Flying Horseman gave a handful of shows and tested the new material on their audience. After that, they got into the studio. Despite the many changes, the album feels as well-known as we hoped. You hear the lightness and accessibility after listening a few times.
