Sarah Neufeld "The Ridge" (Kid Koala remix)
Published Jan 12, 2016Arcade Fire member and violinist extraordinaire Sarah Neufeld is readying her solo follow-up to 2013's Hero Brother, but before The Ridge arrives in full, a fellow Montreal musician has reworked the title track — and Exclaim! has got the premiere.
The symphonic piece of pop has been transformed by none other than turntable wiz Kid Koala, who injects the song with some extra sparkle. Sprinkling it with twinkling synths, echoing vocal samples and haunting piano, the track is totally refurbished, but just as refreshing as the original.
It's a swirl of hypnotizing, cinematic sound, and you can hit play and let it engulf you in the player below.
The Ridge is out on February 26 through Paper Bag Records, and you can find Neufeld's upcoming tour dates in support of the record here.
