Take the sound of keys of ’70’s symfo rock, rocking guitars flavored with weird effects, drum loops and samples, give it a solid Rickenbacker base, spice it up with just enough Dutch impertinence and mix it up in a 21st century refined production process. Heat it up, cool it down, pass it round while shaking it upside down, devide it by pi and you will get pretty close to the Unkh sound.
Four childhood friends who loved and love listening progressive rock with complex arrangements and spun out melodies came together to fulfill their long cherished wish: Record their music and release it on an album. The songs, mainly written by Jeroen Habraken, on the resulting Traveller (2014) are a mix of ’70’s prog and ’80’s new wave and are well received by Background Magazine, IO pages and Progwereld. All this resulted in gigs where Unkh also supported North Atlantic Oscillation, Frequency Drift and Anima Mundi. Guitar was temporarily played by Frits Appel.
Unkh made its appearance with new songs at the Northern Prog Fesival in 2016. This new material has been released on the recently released album Innerverse (2018). Existential loneliness is the main theme as it is expressed in five totally different songs. In the epic almost 20 minutes taking Dreamcatcher, you are taken to the different area’s of subconsciousness which all of them will be expressed musically. Five tracks each with their individual quality, but also with a collective Unkh sound!
