Part of the fun of being a “music hunter” is when you stumble across a band that you instantly love – it’s thrilling, it’s satisfying and it’s infrequent. Capturing my attention this week are the Chi-town based band Filligar. Consisting of three brothers and one childhood friend the boys formed into a band back in 2000! I feel a little uncomfortable that I’m only now becoming aware of their existence but am also extremely satisfied by the discovery.
Rollicking rock, Filligar has the energy of the Black Keys and the flavor of Kings of Leon, but a style that’s all their own. They have that “it” factor. Their latest album The Nerve was released during the summer and is brimming with rich 70’s style rock songs. Their soulful, pull no punches sound will get you hooked, so if you are looking for a new band to love, look no further.
