Fixkes: Fixkes

Fixkes is an acoustic, down-tempo band from Stabroek, Belgium. They sing in their own Antwerp dialect, writing songs about being 30-something and nowhere to go. The vocals sound like the singer is sitting next to you, delivering his stories in a stage whisper. If you can't understand Flemish, focus on the flow of the words and the great rhythms they come up with.

Sam Valkenborgh: vocals guitar
Peter Deckers: guitar, harp
Johan Pauwels: bass
Jan Valkenborgh: drums
Bart Palmers: piano
Joris Van den Broeck: percussion


Their self-titled debut album Fixkes is released on Excelsior Recordings, a Dutch label run by people with great taste. Release date: October 29.
