We’ve been a fan of Kay‘s for a minute, since her collabs with Cobra Starship and Wallpaper. piqued our interest — and now the Canadian chanteuse is back with a new sound of her own in the haunting clip for her new song “Rewind The Track” from her upcoming EP, which Idolator is thrilled to premiere exclusively. Formerly signed to Ryan Tedder‘s imprint on Interscope Records, Kay’s shed her skin to emerge in a new electro-indie space, and we have to say that it suits her.

“‘Rewind The Track’ came from a dark and healing place,” Kay explained to Idolator. “It reflects a time and place in my life that I both cherish and feel emotional towards. It’s a special song for me.” A chilly midtempo cut that’s enlivened by the eerie visuals, which see Kay walking along a beach in spare black-and-white, “Rewind The Track” will have you doing the titular move, over and over again. Watch it above.
