Niki and the Dove’s crowning song of 2010, “DJ Ease My Mind,” finally received the full-scale pop video treatment. An earlier clip produced by the band, featuring found footage of trapeze artists, was first posted on this site two summers ago (and further described in our FADER #72 Gen F on the band). Since then they’ve signed to Sub Pop and Mercury, whose bigger budgets have graced the Stockholm duo with a new video better suited to their growing stardom. It features light figures dancing in space, Malin Dahlström front-and-center, sporting her now-trademark torn-fabric streamers, and Gustaf Karlöf drumming through, alternately, a crimson blindfold and a spotlight strapped to his face.
