The Golden Filter reMix Saint Etienne

Saint Etienne

It’s been a while since we heard from The Golden Filter, always one of the most innovative and interesting Disco acts around, since their soundtrack second album and accompanying film ‘Syndromes’, so for them to be breaking back into our consciousness reMixing one of our all time favourites, Saint Etienne, it a thing of pure awesome.

The New York duo’s version of ‘I’ve Got Your Music’ is a stripped down, moody, dancefloor tune built up on Moroder-esque basslines, warm synths and ‘70’s electronic toms. Completely changing the mood of the track, from euphoric ode to DancePop into something more mysterious, more enigmatic, The Golden Filter leave their calling cards all over these six minutes. Just check out the drop mid-way, the silence only broken by an eerie held note leading to tribal drums and magical arpeggios before dropping right back into to the groove. Drawing on vintage Disco and Italo, this reMix is more reminiscent of the likes of ‘Solid Gold’ than The Golden Filter’s newer output, I wonder what this bodes for the future of the twosome?

The Golden Filter premières ‘Syndromes’

The Golden Filter have premièred their ‘Syndromes’ short film on the Future Shorts YouTube channel.

I won’t give away any spoilers ‘cos it’s embedded just below and only ten minutes long, so you should watch it. I don’t know of The Golden Filter or director Kristoffer Borgli would thank me for calling it a post-modern superhero movie, but I’m going to anyway.

The soundtrack is amazing!

The movie is officially released along with the New York avant-Disco duo’s soundtrack on the 10th.

The Golden Filter: Syndromes

We knew The Golden Filter were up to something!

It seems the have been colluding with Scandinavian filmmaker Kristoffer Borgli on a short movie called ‘Syndromes’. All involved would probably devastated to hear me call it a superhero flick, but to me that’s not an insult. It appears to be a move about a girl with an ‘ability’ and the people who exploit that ability. Check the trailer.

the Golden Filet have also soundtracks the short, here’s the Ladytron-esque title track, Mother’.

‘Syndromes’ premières 10th October.

The Golden Filter’s X-mas tune

New York’s DiscoPop king and queen, The Golden Filter have thrown their X-mas track into the mix. I love it when bands give your presents!

The duo’s contribution to ‘the season’ is a cover of Genesis P.Orridge’s Psychic TV’s eerie winter hymn ‘White Nights’. It sounds kinda’ different with the sleigh-bells and Penelope Trappes’ sweet vocals, but instantly X-massy, even with it’s X-mas nightmare bridge!

The Golden Filter’s Völuspà video

Check this video, which is kind of a promo for The Golden Filter’s amazing début album, ‘Völuspà’. The thing I love about The Golden Filter is that they are all conceptual and arty, as demonstrated by this video of looping beats, samples and some gorgeous visuals, yet their singles are Disco as fuck! And it all works!

Peter Bjorn & John reMix The Golden Filter

 TheGoldenFilter03

The Golden Filter’s ‘Hide Me’ single is out this week and amongst the reMix package is this interpretation by  Peter Bjorn & John, or rather John Eriksson’s project Hortlax Cobra.

Atmospheric, floaty and quite experimental and featuring more of John’s vocals than the Penelope’s, the reMix strips The Golden Filter of their New York Disco but seems to keep their atmosphere and feeling of the original.

The Golden Filter’s new single!

TheGoldenFilter04

While we are waiting (and quite literally can’t wait any longer!) for The Golden Filter’s début long player, ‘Voluspa’, to drop on 26th April we can present here a taste of things to come in the form of the first single from the album.

‘Hide Me’ comes out just before the album release and a is a great choice for lead track. Slightly more upbeat that the previous singles. Still undeniably The Golden Filter’s New York Electro Disco but with a hint if Goldfrapp poppyness.
