El Perro del Mar (translated in Spanish, The Dog of the Sea) is the moniker of Swedish singer-songwriter Sarah Assbring. Assbring sings lo-fi melancholic songs with sunny surf-pop melodies. It sounds contradictory at first, but this balance of sweetness and sadness works pretty well for her.
Pale Fire is the fifth studio album of El Perro del Mar. It continues the slow and steady ascendance of Assbring as an artist and song-writer. There are gentle melodies wafting through the songs. This record wouldn’t be out of place when you play it during a relaxing Sunday brunch.
