Waaaay back in the wild-west bloghaus heyday of 2007, French dance-pop duo Justice released “D.A.N.C.E.”, and it’s been in your head and mine ever since. Today, Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Augé are suddenly back with a new single, titled “Safe And Sound”, and not only is it not a Capital Cities cover (whew), but it oddly has the same innocent charm of their breakout hit — with the funk and ’70s film soundtrack vibe cranked up ever so slightly.
“Safe And Sound” has a nice, airy feel to it, and arrives with intention right at the high-point of summer. It’s Justice’s first bit of new music since 2011’s uneven Audio, Video, Disco, and everyone can go and download it for the neon price of free via the band’s homepage.
As Consequence of Sound notes, “Safe And Sound” was premiered over the weekend during a DJ set from Busy P — also known as Pedro Winter of Ed Banger Records — at Sónar Festival, and was blessed on radio by Annie Mac on her BBC Radio 1 show earlier today.
Funk it up below, and check the single’s album art after the YouTube jump. Let’s hope more jams are on the way; we need bloghaus more than ever.
