Little Dragon’s “Pretty Girls” is definitely a major highlight from Nabuma Rubberband, and the accompanying visuals were also one of the best videos we saw in July. Judging by the sounds of Mikky Ekko’s remix of the song, the creepy Nabil-directed clip is also a great source of inspiration in itself. Ekko manipulates Yukimi Nagano’s vocals for a nightmarish feel, and while it strays far from the upbeat original, it sticks with the aesthetics of the video for “Pretty Girls.”

Little Dragon has also added a number of dates to their existing tour, taking it to the end of 2014. Check out where the Swedish band will be travelling to, and listen to Mikky Ekko’s remix, below.
