press release blurb says:
A second track from Eye Contact, the fifth full-length album from New York's Gang Gang Dance has been revealed today. The five-minute track 'MindKilla' sees the band at their most melodic and dynamic. Propelled by the tight pulsating beats from Jesse Lee, and eerie and ambient samples rising from the keyboards of Brian DeGraw and guitar of Josh Diamond, 'MindKilla' mixes lyrics borrowed from 'Hush Little Baby' and Lizzi Bougatsos' vocal delivery lends a deeply sinister edge to the usually innocent traditional lullaby.
The video for 'MindKilla', directed by Shoji Goto from Japanese experimental noise act Boredoms, is now streaming on the band's official website. In conjunction with the video, Gang Gang Dance are also giving away a free MP3 of 'MindKilla' ahead of its release as part of a double A-side 12" on April 11th. The 12" also features 'Glass Jar', the audacious eleven-minute opening track to Eye Contact, which premiered online last month.
Gang Gang Dance play a one-off headline show at Village Underground, London as part of Dazed Live this Saturday (9th April) but will return in May for a short UK tour.

It's a jaunty little number but perhaps a little too busy sounding for my tastes.
