In 2008, the conceptual album "From The Valley To The Stars", was released. It was followed by an extensive tour together with Lykke Li. For her next work the artist signed up with Rasmus Hägg from the influential duo Studio. The album released in 2009, "Love Is Not Pop", drew inspiration from artists like Arthur Russell though it still retained the significant sound of El Perro del Mar. The 2012 album "Pale Fire" expanded on the soundscapes of Love Is Not Pop, pushing the artist further into dark pop waters revealing her early influences Cocteau Twins but also referring to contemporary acts such as Gang Gang Dance.
Her fifth album, "KoKoro"(2016) incorporated Chinese instruments, Arabic strings and sounds inspired by Ethiopian and Indian music. The album was created in close collaboration with producer Jacob Haage and was released on the artist's own label Ging Ging Recordings.
In 2018, El Perro del Mar is back with the EP "We Are History".
