Ash doesn’t make albums anymore. Instead, they put out singles with videos like this one. On the one hand, you would think that if they’d given up the album process entirely they might put a little effort into this, the visual representation of their music. But then again, the kind of people who completely disregard indebtedness to the album format probably are not that keen arbitrarily accoutring their music at all!

To hear Sarah Assbring say it, Lou Reed’s “Heavenly Arms” had a massive impact on her ability to even begin to write the new album:

“I knew from the beginning I was going to do an album of love songs but as I was far from in an amorous state of mind at the time I realized, I couldn’t write anything that would be pretending I still believed in love. I wanted to though. Desperately. And upon reading the lyrics to “Heavenly Arms” I realized he’d find the way to express this dark and desperate fight for love to survive against all odds. “

El Perro Del Mar is touring in support of her latest album, Love is Not Pop, out now in the U.S. on the Control Group.
