Justice & Tame Impala are bringing back indie sleaze house on ‘One Night/All Night’


Dancey Indie Sleaze is back? After the news of CSS being back on the live circuit, it’s the turn of the French electronic duo Justice to return.

Of course, Justice,  Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay never went away having last released an album called Escapades in 2021, but there is something in the air here in terms of a blog-era dance pop lead single with a noted singer on collaboration, with Kevin Parker aka Tame Impala jumping on the lead single from the band’s forthcoming album Hyperdrama, out April 26th, that sounds like a bit of a return to that electro blog-house sound, along with the tougher sounding electro B-side track ‘Generator’.

We wanted [‘One Night/All Night’] to sound as if a dark/techno iteration of Justice had found a sample of a disco iteration of Kevin Parker. Kevin has a sense of melody that’s fascinating in the sense that he manages to write melodies that feel both simple and natural, but very peculiar at the same time. This song oscillates between pure electronic music and pure disco but you never really get the two at the same time. This very idea of switching instantly from a genre to another within a song runs through the whole record, and is maybe showcased the clearest in ‘One Night/All Night.’

The direction of the “One Night/All Night” video was under the guidance of Anton Tammi, who said of his vision for the video: “I suggested to them that what if we dive in? What if their music video was a journey inside the cross? I dreamed of creating a piece like this. A strange and experimental object that looks like rave lighting inside human lungs and strobe light around a human heart.””

There’s also a more high BPM dance track called ‘Generator’ released alongside it.

“To us, this one sounds like ‘Getaway’ by the Salsoul Orchestra, but with gabber and classic ’90s hardcore techno sounds. Disco/funk and electronic music at large have always been core elements of the music we make as Justice. In Hyperdrama, we make them coexist, but not in a peaceful way. We like this idea of making them fight a bit for attention.”
