El Perro Del Mar sets sail for North American tour

on December 18, 2009, 3:00pm

Well, well, well. As if the winter blues seemed like they’d begin to grow with each passing hour, Gothenburg, Sweden indie sensation El Perro Del Mar offers a ray of sunshine right in the middle of it. Clicking alive on her mini-album, this year’s Love Is Not Pop, and the lead single “Change of Heart.” El Perro Del Mar aka Sarah Assbring, offers a temporary winter relief in the result of a 13-date North American tour starting on none other than Valentine’s Day in what we dub “the Tens.”

While Love Is Not Pop is picking up some sonic waves over here in the States, Assbring also managed to score a Swedish Grammy nominee in the process. That’s also right up there with fellow Swedish indie rockers Peter, Bjorn & John as well. Not bad for a little girl from Gothenburg!

If you haven’t seen the video for “Change of Heart,” then check it out here. Otherwise, mark your calendars for some Scandinavian Sunshine to sweep away your sultry wintertime blues.
