Unknown Union couldn’t be more proud of original member Yannick Ilunga, better known as Petite Noir. We’ve posted this video for “Till We Ghosts” before but today it was named Best New Track by Pitchfork.
The Guardian UK raved “The first three words he sings are “Oh my God”, which is exactly how we felt when we heard this.”
The downside of all this success is that we don’t see Yannick as much we used to: he just returned from Senegal and he’s leaving for London soon to prepare for his live debut at the Old Blue Last on September 13th. When he is in Cape Town, you will most likely find him in the UU office using our wi-fi to further the Noir Wave revolution.
