El Perro Del Mar: Breadandbutter (Karaoke Version)
on 15 June 2016
Despite her Spanish-named moniker El Perro del Mar ("Dog of the Sea"), Sarah Assbring in fact hails from Sweden—though her experimental pop music of late is more globally influenced than ever. Her upcoming album KoKoro, set for release in September, features Arabic strings, Shakuhachi and other Asian flutes, Chinese zither Guzheng, and Ethiopian-influenced rhythms. Off of it, "Breadandbutter" becomes a chant for self-reflection and empathy, and this new karaoke version music video really hammers her lyrics in: "We all come from the belly button, belly button / We all come from the same same pattern pattern / We all start from the bottom, the very bottom."
