Hear Justice’s Psychedelic First Single in Five Years, ‘Safe and Sound’

Slap-bass odyssey marks French electronic duo’s first new material since 2011 LP, ‘Audio, Video, Disco’

French electronic duo Justice rev their funk engines with “Safe and Sound,” their first new song in five years. “Man up, hold tight, driving dark/ Head up, foot down, speed of sound,” voices chant on the track – a psychedelic disco epic built on finger snaps, synth-strings, spastic jazz-fusion synths and one of the fiercest slap-bass grooves since Patrice Rushen’s 1982 classic “Forget Me Nots.”

As Pitchfork reports, the track – which follows the group’s 2011 LP, Audio, Video, Disco and 2013 live album, Access All Arenas – first appeared in Ed Banger Records founder Pedro Winter’s DJ set at June’s Sonar Festival in Barcelona. 

Justice haven’t officially announced their long-awaited third album, but the band appears to be gearing up for a new release. In April, French indie label Because Music tweeted a picture of the group signing a new contract, writing, “On our way to new adventures with these boys.”
