â€œThe secretive New Yorkers wont be anonymous once this makes the leap from blogosphere to the massesâ€ said NME moments before their limited debut UK single release â€œSolid Goldâ€ (dummy). Indeed â€œThe Golden Filter have set the ‘blogosphere’ alight with this frankly totally amazing trackâ€ PopJustice â€˜Song Of The Dayâ€™.Â Paying such compliments like â€œFucking brilliantâ€ itâ€™s no wonder BigStereo invited them on their SXSW showcase this year and HYPE Machine offered The Golden Filter their headlining slot.Â Theyâ€™ll also be gracing the stages ofÂ Gorilla vs Booze, Iheartcomix (official SXSW showcase), SXSW day stage and a slew of others before setting off to support The Presets on their extensive North American Tour.
The Golden Filter are surely poised to be one of the most talked about bands in Austin.
And itâ€™s not just their single which earned them their already rapid massive fanbase.Â In such a short amount of time their remix work has garnered worldwide attention and has quickly made The Golden Filter everyoneâ€™sÂ most sought after remixing outfit. â€œA Feeling that Transcends genreâ€ is what Pitchfork says about The Golden Filterâ€™s remix of Peter Bjorn and Johnâ€™s “Lay it Downâ€ (Download HERE from Pitchfork). Perhaps it was their hypnotic take on Cut Copy’s â€œFar Awayâ€ (Download HERE from RCRD LBL) thatÂ attracted the attention of other local Oz Favorites Empire of the Sun, and the UKs most treasured Little Boots.Â Needless to say The Golden Filter’s original brew of mysticism and romance accompanied with the sounds of seductive analogue synths; are what everyone loves so very much about them. With influences such as Soft Cell and The Human League, Moroder and Kraftwerk, this is a band bringing back adventure, escapism and imagination back to pop music in the USA.
It’s clear we have one of the hottest new bands around and definite ones to watch in 2009!! Donâ€™t miss The Golden Filter in Austin this year or at a stop near you on their upcoming nationwide tour.
