Hot Chip : Need You Now


There are moments in Need You Now where I think it may work better as an instrumental, the production nearly on par with Caribou’s excellent Our Love. Alexis’s vocals are never overbearing, and it’s the signature Hot Chip aspect, but it feels a little redundant here, especially with the killer sampled hook. It’s still wonderful, and there’s a great earnestness in Alexis’s voice that still resonates, even as Hot Chip still shine a decade on in the spotlight.
