El Perro Del Mar – “Walk On By” (Saint Etienne Remix)

By Tom Breihan / October 19, 2012

Wistful British polyglots Saint Etienne are originators in the cosmopolitan-dancepop game, and lately, Swedish pop artist El Perro Del Mar has been walking the aesthetic trail that they helped to blaze. So it’s cool to see Saint Etienne dropping a new remix of “Walk On By,” the new El Perro Del Mar single. They transform the song into a broody, throbbing thing and include an appearance from Dorien Corey, a star of the seminal drag-queen documentary Paris Is Burning. Listen below.

El Perro Del Mar’s new album Pale Fire is out 11/13 on the Control Group.
