A breakup story takes a surreal twist for Hot Chip leader Alexis Taylor in the new video for the UK group's "Need You Now."
The visual accompaniment for this low-key, soul-inflected dance tune begins with a woman packing up a van and leaving Taylor. He mopes around the house, but things get increasingly surreal as he becomes caught in a time loop with multiple versions of himself and he ends up at a set of train tracks leading to nowhere.
The clip was directed by Shynola.
This song comes from Hot Chip's upcoming album Why Make Sense, which is due out on May 19 through Domino.
