EL PERRO DEL MAR
El Perro Del Mar was founded in the end of 2003 around the idea and need of making music on terms of one’s own. Behind the alter-ego is the sole member Sarah Assbring. Sarah started out as what is often referred to as an mp3-artist and in spring 2004 the first CDR-ep ‘Baby, I’ve Been In A Bad Place’ was released by the then newly started Swedish label Hybris. El Perro Del Mar left Hybris and found a new home on Licking Fingers in Sweden, The Concretes’ own label. It was time for new ideas and new ways. During the spring and summer of 2007 the work on the second album ‘From The Valley To The Stars’ began. The recordings were done in her own studio in Gothenburg. Sarah says “I wanted to make something as unfashionable as an album in the classic sense of the word – in terms of its composition and the idea of a theme. The theme itself was initially something as simple yet complex as heaven and it led me into a wide and seemingly endless search for a means, a language in which to express myself. Although during this time I was, even though I mostly didn’t realize it, following a certain train of thought – that of love, grief and loss, solace and hope, deepest despair and wildest childish euphoria – to the lowest and the highest of heights.”
