Justice Invent Futuristic Sport for ‘New Lands’ Video
What do you get when you combine baseball, football, roller derby, lacrosse and motorcross -- and then give it a futuristic 'Tron'-meets-'Warriors' edge? You get the video for the Justice song 'New Lands.' The clip is for the fourth and most recent single from the French electronica duo's 'Audio, Video, Disco' album, which dropped last year.
A lot of money obviously went into this video, and it's a good thing. They just don't make them like this anymore. Directed by Canada -- the video auteur, not the nation to the north -- the clip actually has a storyline, a bit of a plot and definitely something to grab your attention and hold on to it. Let's just say it's a nail biter, all the way down to the last-second goal-line stand.
That's a bit like catching a live Justice show, if you are a fan. It's been called a religious experience, and that's not just because of the giant cross they light up in front of their performance podium. From the moment they take the stage to the last song, Justice put on an epic show. And they can do without all the Daft Punk comparisons, thank you very much.
