Published Apr 06, 2009I'm a little later on this one than I wanted to be, since they played Montreal last night, but NYC's the Golden Filter will be playing Toronto's Mod Club, opening for the Presets tonight. Getting lots of blogger love the past few months, the duo is comprised of Stephen and Penelope, who share a mutual passion for the soft focus and warm sounds of '70s romanticism. Hence the heavy disco influence on their debut single, "Solid Gold."
Somewhere between Glass Candy's detached world of analogue fantasies and Goldfrapp's electronic extravagance, "Solid Gold" is pure dance floor escapism, with his arpeggiating synths and her airy vocals.
Don't miss them on April 13 at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, also with the Presets.
