Harry Nathan and Angus1 hadn’t actually met prior to working on this song together, but when they did meet at Harry’s place they bonded quickly over some delicious French pastries and a few cocktails. Soon enough a theme for a song began to emerge through their discussions about loneliness.
“Introduced by a mutual friend, “I’m In Need” was written on the day that Angus1 and I first met. We sat in my kitchen eating French éclairs, lemon tarts and croque monsieur croissants whilst getting to know each other. This theme of longing emerged during our conversations, and that vibe was captured in the studio moments later. The press photos (shot by Seiya Taguchi) are a re-enactment of those circumstances.” – Harry Nathan
“Harry and I were put in touch by a mutual friend who knew we were both a little eccentric and had releases on Kitsuné Musique. I’d never made a track with someone I’d literally just met, but we found common ground really quickly and did just that. I think the song is a nice mid-point between our writing and production styles, and it didn’t hurt that Harry plied me with pastries and booze either” – Angus1
