Montreal band The Barr Brothers formed in 2005 when singer and guitarist Brad Barr met concert harpist Sarah Page after hearing her practice through the wall of his apartment. He and his brother, Andrew Barr, had played together in Boston as The Slip. But The Barr Brothers, as an official group, only took form after Page joined.

Here, the band plays songs from its new album, Sleeping Operator.
