Hot Chip – “Need You Now (Music Video)”

Universal themes of love and heartbreak can always be found lingering on the dance floor. Hot Chip‘s “Need You Now,“ the second single off their upcoming ‘Why Make Sense?’ album, strikes those same chords, but also push those ideas just a bit further. Instead of resting on beautifully laid out melancholic tones the track also expresses hints of revival and promise through those uplifting chords and shimmering chimes after the 3 minute mark. The vocal sample is taken from Sinnamon’s 1983 gem “I Need You Now” and Hot Chip’s very own Alexis Taylor delivers his own heart aching vocals. This track is deep in every sense of the word. And the video is one of their best to date following a broken hearted Alexis as he struggles to piece together different parts of himself while trying to hold on to his love interest. Check it out up above. Make sure you pre-order the new album so you can get instant copies of “Huarache Lights” and “Need You Now.”
