Artist Spotlight: El Perro del Mar

El Perro del Mar might be Spanish for "The Sea Dog," but the music is a solo endeavor by Swedish artist, Sarah Assbring.

For years now, Sweden has been successfully complementing it's tradition for heavy metal with a solid collection of indie-pop artists, including José González, Jens Lekman, Lykke Li and Peter Björn & John.

El Perro del Mar first came under my radar about a year and a half ago, surrounding the release of her sophomore album, From the Valley to the Stars. It wasn't until I heard the quietly seductive single, "Change of Heart" earlier this year that I was fully brought in, however.

Assbring's airy vocals drift with sadness through El Perro del Mar's understated pop ditties. The arrangements are layered in subtleties that emerge over repeat listens. These are not songs masquerading in darkness. They linger, sweetly intoxicating, but feel as real as pure heartache.

Watch the music videos for "Change of Heart" and "Glory to the World" below.
