Flight Facilities – With You feat. Grovesnor

Considering how much I already love Flight Facilities, it’s kind of amazing that this is only the third single that they’ve released. “With You” is a forbidden love song chock full of sexy disco grooves and R&B influenced vocals handled by Grovesnor, aka Rob Smoughton, the drummer in Hot Chip. The video is an Astro Boy-influenced animated short film about a girl and a robot who aren’t suppose to be in love, and the story follows the lyrics of the song pretty well. “With You” is so smooth and soulful, full of angst and yet very easy to dance to, which makes it one of my favorite new songs that I’ve heard recently.

[I’m a little embarrassed that I didn’t realize until like the third or fourth time I watched the video that the design of his helmet is actually the Flight Facilities band logo.]
