Holy mother of God, what did Hot Chip just drop on us?! This is the 2nd single from the upcoming new album, and it’s notably different from ‘Hurricane Lights’ (dropped on here in February). Well honestly, it’s very different from all their previous work. ‘Need You Now’ definitely has a Deep House vibe, but it cannot escape that Hot Chip flavour, which is largely attributed to the wonder that is Alexis Taylor’s voice.
Also, doesn’t he remind you of John Oliver? Anyways, I digress.
The video is a must watch, as it suits the track perfectly. And the music? Well, it’s pure ear candy with the various vocal parts, and makes me even more excited about the upcoming album. What a great year for music this is shaping up to be.
