El Perro Del Mar’s new record Pale Fire drops soon, and the endlessly creative Swedish songstress known to her family as Sarah Assbring just dropped the album’s first single, the beguilingly mesmerizing “Innocence is Sense.” The song’s mostly built up around layers of sweeping noise that make the whole thing sound like an alien abduction experience; Assbring’s own shouted, inscrutable vocals feel ungrounded, almost un-human. It helps that the video comes with a video as hypnotic as it is vaguely disturbing, starring Assbring and a strange, Hitchcockian hotel room.
