El Perro del Mar: Change Of Heart

From The Flaming Lips' "Turning Violent" to Jesse Woods' "Lazerburn," our look at music this week

Hailing from Sweden’s port city of Gothenburg, Sarah Assbrin—better known as El Perro del Mar—has been crafting dreamy indie pop since she started recording on CD-R discs back in 2003, but her music has only recently gained traction outside of her homeland. Her 2009 track, “Change of Heart” reveals the Svenska artist at her finest. Somehow this calming yet addictive track fell through the cracks for many. Jazz-inspired piano and guitar riffs, coupled with Assbring’s soft vocals, call to mind Mazzy Star without the ’90s distortion. Look out for El Perro del Mar’s collaborations with fellow Swedish indie artists Jens Lekman and Lykke Li, with more sure to come.
