Hot Chip need you to know that their “Need You Now” has arrived

02 April 2015, 12:36 | Written by Laurence Day

Hot Chip have unveiled the video for new Why Make Sense? single "Need You Now".

The video was directed by Shynola, who said of the band: “We share a lot of the same references and attitudes - there’s a definite aesthetic affinity. The idea for the video wholly came from our reaction to the song. What was intended to be a piece of thrifty filmmaking ended up being a mind-melting shoot - if you can imagine shooting multiple versions of reality, but completely out of chronology, plus in the pissing rain and wind.”

Why Make Sense? will also be available as a Special Edition, featuring the Separate EP (four new offcuts from the album sessions). It's due on 18 May via Domino.
