Katy B has plans to close out 2013 with her sophomore album — a set that's still without a title, but which is giving us every reason to get enthused. We were first introduced to her exuberant single "What Love Is Made Of," which then reappeared in a fast and furious video full of drag racing, and again as a devastatingly sweet unplugged piano-enhanced clip. "5 AM" followed exhibiting a different theme: love as a heady and dangerous thing, backed by a score of slightly off-kilter dance music. In the just-released video for the song, that idea is writ large as a woozy, anxiety-addled romp at a very unusual party. The scene borrows heavily from Eyes Wide Shut as Katy B moves through crowds of creepy hosts and revelers in features-twisting masks. Primal dancing, intoxicating drink, and lurky strangeness abounds. Will our heroine make it out unscathed? Watch above to find out.
