Sweden’s El Perro Del Mar (aka Sarah Assbring) is releasing a new six-song EP, We Are History, on February 23 via The Control Group. Now she has shared the EP’s opening track, “Mirrors,” via a video for the song. Connor Hurley directed the video, which features three generations of women (or the same woman at three different ages, it’s unclear). Watch it below.

Assbring had this to say about the video in a press release: “It’s a dialogue with another human being (or oneself), either in present time or in the past - to help better understand oneself and therefore our fellow human beings. It’s a song left somewhere on a cold moor about reaching out to yourself for empathy and humanity. Of daring to see yourself and others with love and compassion.”

Hurley said this: “For me, ‘Mirrors’ is about the struggle and perseverance of women from the beginning of time. The characters represent the same woman at three stages of life and the idea of attempting to communicate with your past and present selves.”

Assbring also had this to say about the EP in the press release: “We Are History is about me, the people of the world and the history behind us. Knowledge learnt through time that we should’ve cherished but that we throw away. The music and the theme of the EP have a close link to the past. Lately I’ve kept going back hundreds or two hundreds years back in time in a desperate attempt to connect to people living back then to find some answer to our condition today. What did we do to end up here? How different are we or are we any different?”
