The Golden Filter is the communal guise of Australian, Penelope Trappes and American, Stephen Hindman. Part art project, part electronic experimentation, part dark techno party, The Golden Filter were born in 2008 in NYC as a disruption to the pop music status quo. Now based in London, their current raw, energetic, minimal wave sound pushes the limits of analogue beat-heavy soundscaping, caressed by Penelope’s angular, ghostly vocalisations and energetic performances.
In 2019, The Golden Filter released two EPs, 'Dislocation' and 'Restaint,' as well as a full- length LP, 'Autonomy' on their newly formed label, 4GN3S, along with a 17-date tour supporting Sharon Van Etten throughout the UK and Europe. Previous to that was a run of EPs and an album on the formidable Optimo Music.
