They’re back! After over four years, Justice make a return with a departure from their previous work. I’m a big fan of Justice. Their first album, Cross, holds a special place in my heart (and my music collection) as one of my first big musical loves as a late teenager. The flame of fandom dulled a little with a disappointing (for me at least) second album but I’m back on board 100%.
‘Safe and Sound’ takes Justice’s funky bass-lines and fondness for choirs, but leaves the abrasive synths. The whole track is a long slow build to a delicious synth breakdown. The result is something that sounds one part DFA, one part Soulwax and one part Justice – and that’s about as good a musical cocktail as you can make.
[I actually started writing this before I’d even finished the song, I like it that much.]
