The Swedish kalaidescope of music El Perro Del Mar just announced her new album Pale Fire. The new album will be her fifth. In reference to the new album El Perro Del Mar released a statement:
‘In this world, you think you have no reason to believe in love or in anything much. Then one day, when you least expect it, a light appears on the far horizon. It’s a flickering light, begging you to come, telling you to stay away. It’s the pale fire. The promise of love and hope – all consuming and elusive. Yet for a moment, it brings clarity in the darkness, future to the ruins and power to the fight.’
And giving a taste of this clarity and darkness is her new track “Hold Off The Dawn” which was releasd today. The track is bubbling wave of new wave tropicalia pop. It’s fun and the colorful dancy synths would wash away those stormy blues. Listen to it here (via NPR). The track will be included on the new album Pale Fire which will be released on November 13, 2012.
