Sarah Neufeld Announces New Album

Sarah Neufeld to release Hero Brother on Constellation Records

Montreal based Sarah Neufeld will release her debut solo record, Hero Brother, on August 20th on Constellation Records. The soaring title track can be heard now accompanied by a dramatic, cinematic trailer.

Neufeld, known primarily for her violin work as a member in Arcade Fire and Bell Orchestre, counts Bela Bartok, Steve Reich, Iva Bittova and Arthur Russell as some of the formative influences on her solo work, in tandem with the textures and sensibilities of contemporary electro-acoustic, avant-folk and indie rock music.

Hero Brother expands on Neufeld’s inspirations and experience, flowing through shifting atmospheres and oscillating between restrained, stately ambience, emotive études, and raw kinetic energy.

Neufeld will be touring internationally as a soloist extensively throughout 2013-2014, alongside her ongoing commitments with Arcade Fire.
