There’s something of a French electronic renaissance in the air at the moment. There’s the return of Justice and constant murmurings of a Daft Punk tour — it almost feels like the noughties are happening all over again.
With that in mind, Justice have just unveiled the accompanying video for their current single ‘Randy’ — and it’s a clever live action art installation.
Comprised of 25 CRT Sony screens stacked in a similar vein to their live setup, the video was shot in one take, in real time, and is a clever twist on the lyric video style that music fans seem to like these days.
Speaking about the video, the installation’s creator Thomas Jumin said: “The idea for this screen installation came from an inclination for an aesthetic in live show lighting that is both powerful and minimalistic.
“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.”
Justice’s third studio album ‘Woman’ is out on Friday 18th November via Ed Banger Records.
