Hot Chip 'Need You Now' by Shynola
They may be animation legends but Shynola are pretty much all about live action these days when it comes to their outings in music video. But the magic is still there, as this intriguing fantasy for Hot Chip's wistful Need You Now shows.
Band frontman Alexis Taylor, in a post break-up daze, and marooned in a familiarly desolate and drizzly English seaside town, finds himself caught in a strange time-loop. He ends up in a cat-and-mouse chase with himself - and playing both the cat and the mouse.
It's intricately structured - with the mystery increased as versions of Alexis are obliterated as everything turns to black. But the chase still goes on, and the video does an excellent job of depicting a sense of helpless anguish, amidst a feeling of unfinished business - all reflecting Alexis's emotive vocals in the track.
