Details El Perro Del Mar
The latest signing to Memphis Industries (The Go! Team, Dungen, The Pipettes, Field Music et al) is a beautiful Swedish singer called Sarah who writes and records under the name El Perro Del Mar.
El Perro Del Mar is already a star in her native Sweden, via sold-out EPs, the magic of the internet and a split 7” with Jens Lekman released on the uber-cool Secretly Canadian label (Anthony and The Johnsons, Magnolia Electric Co, Damien Jurado etc).
Her other-worldly vocals married with heartfelt lyrics of love and loneliness make for a unique record sure to bewitch audiences when she plays as special guest to fellow countryman, José Gonzales on his UK tour in February – dates below.
These will be her debut UK shows, El Perro Del Mar has previously toured with José Gonzales, The Radio Dept and Khonnor amongst others, in mainland Europe.
This from Sarah (El Perro Del Mar):
El Perro Del Mar is simply the name of the music that I was dreaming of and planning on making for a long time. I just needed some time to find the means to do it the right way. Having finally done so I realized that there was no real trick to it; except doing it.
El Perro Del Mar simply is the easiest and most direct way for me to say and do the things I cannot do in real life. To live inside the music, to close the door on the outside world – if just for 3 minutes of a song.
