Filago is almost as magical and ethereal as their indie post-punk sound: The three musicians find common ground in their mutual affinities for Nick Cave, The Talking Heads, and Connan Mockasin as they explore a more elegant, delicate and spectral style of indie rock. Mark Hollis is a definite influence both lyrically and musically, as are the 60’s dreamy atmospheres à la Velvet Underground when instrumentals break down to bare bones bass and drums. Filago, however, favours more intense layering of organic matter and futuristic trance beats.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
