You know a few months ago, there’s been this mysterious sexy act appearing from the smudgy sidewalks of New York. Shimering through the repetitive corners of hot dog stands and pizza bistros were The Golden Filter. Who were they? Nobody knew, what were they? Sultry and dusky nu-disco.
After having made their debut appearance a few months ago, they have been having a bloggerific career and found a spot opening up for The Presets. They have also laid their electro fingers on some other contemporaries such as Cut Copy.
Now they grace their smooth synths on new Mute signing Polly Scattergood. The UK singstress is quite sultry herself. Her self-titled album borders between urgent longing sad love songs to shoegaze-incuded Dolly Partonesque songs. The Golden Filter’s touch on Please Don’t Touch filters (pardon the pun) her vocals into a complimentary airy disco vibe making the song pounce your ears with funky bass and beats ala a futuristic ABBA.
