Justice share video for ‘Randy’

It takes the form of a glitching installation by Thomas Jumin.

Back with their first record in five years, French electro-banger experts Justice have shared a new video for their delightfully titled single ‘Randy’. Featuring a tonne of tellies, all flashing up L.E.D gubbins in quick succession, it takes the idea of a lyric video, and makes it infinitely more complicated.

“The idea for this screen installation came from an inclination for an aesthetic in live show lighting that is both powerful and minimalistic,” explained the video’s director Thomas Jumin. “The object itself, the CRT Trinitron by SONY, is iconic for people of a certain generation for its design, and for its specific rendering of the image. The idea was to build an installation made of 25 screens from 1987 and to use them with video controllers and analogue converters. We simply filmed it like one would film an art installation, so as to retain the objects’ authority and repetitive simplicity.”

In other words, the whole thing was really bloody fiddly, and they went to a lot of trouble.

Justice’s new album ‘Woman’ is out on November 18th via Ed Banger. It’s the follow-up to their 2011 release ‘Audio, Video, Disco’.
