El Perro del Mar: A Swedish Salty Dog Looks East

The forthcoming record from El Perro del Mar is called 'KoKoro,' and is due out on September 16.

El Perro Del Mar, "the dog of the sea," is the unexpected—and unexpectedly Spanish—name for the work of the Swedish singer and songwriter Sarah Assbring. But doing the unexpected has become the norm for the artist over the past decade. She started as a kind of bedroom pop artist but has evolved continuously over the course of five albums. Her sixth album, KoKoro, comes out on September 16, and it contains echoes of Asian and African musical traditions—and El Perro Del Mar is here to give us a taste of what’s to come.
