The far-infrared Herschel space observatory and the (sub-) millimetre interferometer ALMA are giving us the opportunity to probe the sky like never before. Mostly thanks to Herschel, it has been realised that cold interstellar clouds are permeated with complex networks of filaments. The question of the role played by such filaments in the process of star formation is still open. In this talk I will present recent IRAM 30m and ALMA observations of two fiamentary Infrared Dark Clouds. I will discuss the impact of cloud morphology and kinematics on the determination of core masses, and how these observations can fit in the context of a universal star formation process.
