Filmstrip / Bio

Critics have called Filmstrip everything from psychedelic to punk to slacker rock. But that only reveals some of the truth about the sonic experience that this threesome from Cleveland have put together. The howling guitars and driving rhythm of "Should Have Seen It Coming" are equal parts 90's grunge and early 70's psych.

The lineup is as follows: Dave Taha, vocals and guitar; Matt Taha, bass and vocals; Nick Riley, drums. The brothers' dynamics and harmonies show Filmstrip's closeness while the style and structure of their songs show innovation.The title track to their new debut LP, "Everything Can Change" is a fast- paced pop jam that doesn't let up.

Coming from the legendary Cleveland underground music scene that birthed everyone from Pere Ubu to up-and-comers Cloud Nothings, Filmstrip first garnered international media attention when they performed at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010. With a debut LP and two national tours under their belts, a split 7" with Fahri from Milwaukee in the works and a spring tour planned, Filmstrip are certainly keeping busy.
