Neufeld has also been making a name for herself as a successful and impressive solo artist since 2013’s Hero Brother. Now, she’s back with a new album The Ridge, a dive into rhythmic pop minimalist featuring Arcade Fire’s Jeremy Gara on the drums. Their chemistry together is palpable, as they create a captivating atmosphere that will have you hooked from start to finish.

Above is the premiere of Neufeld’s video for “We’ve Got A Lot,” a gorgeous collage of the daily life of teenagers, where art becomes reality and reality becomes art. Of the video, Neufeld says: "'We've Got a Lot' is directed by Jason Last, with choreography by Renee Sills, and features footage from the daily lives of a group of high school students in Miami. The video becomes a portal, as it is their eyes and vision behind the camera. We see a generation that is constantly creating and controlling it's image digitally, while presenting it as reality. “
