I’m definitely partial to any music project by blonde Swedish girls, and I’d be lying if I said El Perro Del Mar’s “Change of Heart” video with Lykke Li wasn’t what originally turned me on to the band (that video’s below). Anyhow, El Perro Del Mar–the project of Swede Sarah Assbring–has announced a new album titled Pale Fire that will be out November 13. Single “Walk On By” is already out, and you can stream that below as well. For a bit more insight into Pale Fire, some thoughts from Sarah Assbring on the new album:
In this world, you think you have no reason to believe in love or in anything much. Then one day, when you least expect it, a light appears on the far horizon. It’s a flickering light, begging you to come, telling you to stay away. It’s the pale fire. The promise of love and hope – all consuming and elusive. Yet for a moment, it brings clarity in the darkness, future to the ruins and power to the fight.
