Filament

Filament

Filament formed in 1994 in Cincinnati, OH. This partnership has taken various forms over the years, and the members have continued to inform and resonate off one another.

Drawing on a love of classic 1-guitar bands (James Gang, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Joy Division, The Police), modern experimental rock (Sonic Youth, Swervedriver, This Heat, The Flaming Lips) and a wide range of Hip-Hop, R&B, Jazz and Electronic influences, Filament has always been about an inquisitive approach more than any particular sound.

The band has a minimal guitar-bass-drums lineup, but the roles of the instruments bob and weave, and sometimes invert - the drum figure may be the "hook", the guitar the repetitive rhythmic figure and the bass may become melody.

Filament has released a string of well-received EPs, and are currently at work on an LP due for summer release.

Filament is greatly looking forward to appearing at MidPoint Music Festival Sept. 2012!ck should take note.
