Today sees the premier of the 2nd single from El Perro del Mar’s fourth LP, Pale Fire. The song, “Hold off the Dawn” is an electro-pop dreamscape that showcases El Perro del Mar’s Sarah Assbring in a more upbeat arena. Of the song, that deals with universal themes, Sarah shares:

"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."
