"Need You Now" is a pop song built using one of the core the principles of club music, the build-and-release. It begins gingerly, just a few light synth pulses and a drumbeat, but as it climbs, you sense that a payoff isn't far off. Synths quicken, Whitford's voice begins to ache, and by the time we reach the four-minute mark, the song has exploded into one of those glittering, starry-eyed climaxes that pop music fans live for.

The opening track from Cut Copy's 'Zonoscope' LP comes with typically epic remix by Carl Craig, a languid Architecture In Helsinki version and an extended Gavin Russom remix. 'Need You Now' is already primed for stadiums and corporate festival moments, but Carl Craig tempers the pop factor with stealthier arrangements for the 'floor, while Architecture In Helsinki slow it down to Lambchop like Country with extra synths. Russom's remix is the most successful, stripping everything down, mostly erasing the kickdrums and foregrounding the synth for a luscious and learned widescreen pop dream.
