My favorite Aussie boys have done it yet again. After surprising us with that beautiful “curve ball” of a single ‘Stranded’ (featuring Broods, Reggie Watts, and Saro), Flight Facilities launched a new song that pays homage to the sound they have been famous for.
‘Need You’ sounds like a more grown-up version of the duo’s 2014 hit ‘Crave You’. In fact, you can even hear the same* dancey drumlines from the latter all throughout the new song. Aside from this, Hugo and Jimmy made sure they injected their signature funky basslines and disco-esque synths, making the song more accessible to retired EDM/pop-loving folks.
Fans of the guys will agree that this wouldn’t be a Flight Facilities song if they do not feature their trademark female vocals in their creation. This time, Broods’ younger sister NÏKA lent her dreamy, enchanting voice, making the song unusually nostalgic and reminiscent of so many hits from the 80s.
This is definitely a shoo-in in my 18 of 2018.
*Yes, I noticed this because I listened to it at least 7x straight since they launched it yesterday
