So The Golden Filter have been making a short film, and soundtracking it with their music...that's what they were teasing about a couple of weeks ago! The short film is in collaboration with Scandinavian director Kristoffer Borgli and is about a girl with some X-Men/Misfits (MISS YOU MISFITS! HURRY BACK!) kinda steez and how she gets caught up in the bloated, gold lined underbelly of the rich, according to the PR. Judging with my own eyes, it seems beautifully and thoughtfully filmed as well as excellently soundtracked by Stephen and Penelope to boot.
'Mother' is the tune that accompanies the trailer below, and has the sonic trademark of a ponderous, TGF beat. To my delight, there are some new elements in there that I really enjoyed; the Yeasayer-esque synths, with the hissing high hat in what sounds like real drums and off beat accents that lift the track from simply fashionable to something spookier and infinitely more interesting. This is an exciting and dynamic addition to The Golden Filter's soundscape with which to put Penelope's ethereal vocals.
Sydnromes is due out on the 10th of October. Be on the look out, I expect it to be pretty good.
