The melancholic Swedish songstress Sarah Assbring — better known as El Perro Del Mar — released a video for her song “I Was A Boy” off of the 2012 album Pale Fire. The video’s simplicity is jarring; a back-lit Assbring stares unflinchingly into the camera with pink-rimmed eyes as she croons the entirety of “I Was A Boy.” The camera never moves, and nothing distracts from Assbring’s mournful voice accompanied by whistling arrangements reminiscent of the sea.
