From the Swedish crew's Knife-y 'Northern Lights' EP
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.
