Sarah Fimm's new studio album, Near Infinite Possibility, will be released May 5th. Featuring Josh Freese (A Perfect Circle), Earl Slick (David Bowie), Danny Blume (Jill Sobule), Paul Bushnell (Tracy Chapman), Sara Lee (the B-52's), and Sterling Campbell (Eric Clapton, David Byrne), Near Infinite Possibility draws comparison to the haunting yet pure vocals of Amy Lee, the classic rock guitar work of Jimmy Paige and George Harrison on tracks like "Flames," and distorted effects in the vein of Massive Attack.

Recorded in New York, New Jersey, and Los Angeles, Near Infinite Possibility is a 13-track effort showcasing a dark, chaotic mixture of rock and pop with alternative influences. Her sound is colored with smooth, melodic rock fused with thick electronic grooves.

The first single, "Yellow" is an airy bass-driven ballad inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman's groundbreaking short story, "The Yellow Wallpaper," a dark collection of journal entries written by a woman whose husband has put her on "rest cure;" confining her to a bedroom of a house. Forbidden to work, she has to hide her journal entries from him, so that she can recuperate from what he calls a "temporary nervous depression a slight hysterical tendency," a diagnosis common to women in the Victorian period. The story depicts the effect of confinement on the narrator's mental health, and her descent into psychosis, paranoia, delusion and desperate fear, as the disparity between reality and the events of her mind crumble. Employing tropes of horror films, eerie color treatments and quick edits, the video for "Yellow" invokes feelings of curiosity and wonder, and at the same time, macabre and unease.
