New: Justice - Civilisation
The new single from Justice finally gets its full release and video treatment.
The song got a preview when it was used for the soundtrack of an advert for Adidas earlier this year >
The video was directed by Edouard Salier and it's a change from the band's previous video work with Romain Gavras, who directed the band's Stress video. Civilisation is more poetic and subtle, and less confrontational.
It bodes well for their long-awaited second album, their previous Cross album which came out in 2007 setting a new standard for innovative French music.
The song has a grandeur and an epic feel, as well as being a stomping tune. There will certainly be some fiery remixes of this to look forward to.
As yet there are no details of the second album. The image the band posted may or may not be the cover, but whatever comes out, and whenever it arrives, it looks like it's going to be great.
