Stockholm's Kate Boy is quickly rising through the ranks thanks to their winning amalgam of Little Dragon pop and Knife-like dark dance. They've blessed the blogosphere with but a pair of tracks thus far, but much promise is buried therein. The hypnotic and propulsive "Northern Lights" came first (SPIN had the premiere on the Taken By Trees-helmed remix) followed shortly by "In Your Eyes," a seething beat-bubbler with a shadowy elemental streak. We've now got a video for the latter, which rolls back the in-band enigma to reveal (most of) Australian-born vocalist Kate Akhurst's face. The opening shot is tightly cropped to the singer's upper body, but as the camera rolls back on a visible track, we discover a jumble of exposed fluorescent tube lighting, not to mention the rest of the group.

The Northern Lights EP is out now on IAMSOUND (Banks, Charli XCX, Salem) with an additional remix from Angeleno electro-romantics Superhumanoids.
