El Perro Del Mar - Shelter (The XX Cover)

Last Wednesday, one of our beloved Swedes came through Brooklyn with her emotions on her sleeve, ready to wring them out on a wanting audience. And while I sadly could not make the El Perro Del Mar's performance at the Knitting Factory, thankfully, we've got some video that will ease the pain of a missed moment.


While we remain infatuated with the sound of Sarah Assbring's voice, there is something positively enchanting as she tackles The XX's Shelter. The original song was already dripping with mesmerizing emotions, and Assbring only ups the wow factor with a flawless live cover.

Watch the sensational presentation now.
