Iconic blog house duo Justice have released a music video for their track "Heavy Metal" off of their Grammy-nominated album Woman Worldwide. Directed by Filip Nilsson and featuring the Norfolk State University marching band, the duo's latest video chronicles the band's preparation for a big performance under the spotlight.
Throughout the practice, the banging of the drums and the movement of the band members is timed up to coincide with the beat of the song. Although the actual band is not heard for most of the video, there are brief moments where the brass section and then the full band's actual performance is synced up to the visuals.
Justice (consisting of Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay) released the original version of "Heavy Metal" on their 2016 album Woman. The version included in the music video is roughly one half of their track "Heavy Metal x DVNO" from this year's Woman Worldwide remix album, which features a number of mashups and reworked tracks from the duo's library.
They will be facing Jon Hopkins, TOKiMONSTA, Sofi Tukker, and SOPHIE at the 61st annual Grammy Awards in February of 2019. This year's nomination marks their fifth; they are looking to get their second win to accompany their award for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical in 2008.
