El Perro Del Mar: A Downtempo Sound You Need To Know

El Perro Del Mar

Can you imagine a cool, sexy, modern cover of Dionne Warwick’s 1964 classic “Walk on By”?

Yes! … and, it could not be a better homage, with this track giving life to an old favorite and making it soulfully chic and suave.

The sole member of El Perro del Mar (translates to The Dog of the Sea) is Swedish songbird — and Twiggy look-alike — Sarah Assbring.

The legendary Burt Bacharach wrote many of his classic melodies specifically for Warwick — and like Dionne’s satin-smooth vocals — Assbring’s sweet, soothing voice is what takes this song to the stratosphere. 

I think Mr. Bacharach would agree.
