Last week El Perro Del Mar released her chilling 3rd single “I Was A Boy” & this morning a music video, a live take of the song directed by Swedish directors Belle & Light. The filmmaking duo who pride themselves on finding innovative ways of capturing “the live moment” place Sarah Assbring (otherwise known as El Perro Del Mar) against a stark background, letting her lyrics + delivery fill the spotlight.
Of the poignant song, Sarah shares, “As a kid I was a tomboy for a long time. It didn’t really occur to me that I was a girl until I started school. Reluctantly I then accepted the rules of ‘what’s expected of you as a girl or a boy’. Falling in love reminded me of the feeling of being undefined by anyone as anything. Of just being. Of feeling. Of being loved.”
