I admire the multitude of music that arises around Arcade Fire. The band members have previously played together, mixed up into different bands, as part of the Montreal scene and they continue to support each other’s projects as well as write and perform as solo acts.
While no concerts of Arcade Fire are scheduled in Poland in the near future, solo performances of Arcade Fire’s members do happen – Jeremy Gara recently played a concert in Krakow, as part of the OFF Camera Festival, and Sarah Neufeld will perform at Powidoki in Warsaw on Sunday.
The violinist recorded 4 full studio albums with Arcade Fire, two full-length solo albums, a duet with Colin Stetson, as well as some earlier releases, amongst others with Bell Orchester. Her last solo album, “The Ridge” (2016), is a minimalistic combination of voice and violin. Jeremy Gara, mentioned earlier, also participated in the recording.
Neufeld will be joined that night by Resina – a talent, fished out two years ago by FatCat Records. On their website, the label informs, that they have signed Resina based on “a hugely impresive demo”. In September 2016, in the “post-classic” branch of FatCat Records, 130701, Resina released a great debut, and the premiere of the new album is scheduled for July this year.
Calling these two ladies a “a great musical match” is an understatment, but I believe it’s better to say too little than too much. Therefore I leave you here with a mixtape, with music by Sarah Neufeld, Resina and projects, which they participated and with the information that the concert starts at 21:00.
