El Perro Del Mar on 'KoKoro' (her 5th album):
'For every new album I make I always start by seeking out an instrument or two that feels completely new to me - that stirs something in me; that ignite feelings, words and melodies. Having both consciously and subconsciously distanced myself the last few years from "commercially streamlined and easy accessible music" in the wish to find a new way to write relevant pop music with references and influences that feel fresh and that had no obvious western referential holdings on me. I think I was after the directness that signified my debut album but that spoke both of big and small matters of the heart rather than only navel-gazing ones.

'KoKoro' is about the vulnerability and the strength of the heart. What the heart is exposed to, both internally and externally. The heart cannot be protected. Not from pain, not from happiness. Not from love, not from corruption. I've been thinking a lot about issues such as "who am I if the social norms, expectations and pressures I carry were to be stripped away?" Hard? Soft? Or maybe both?
