“Love has made me reason / Love has made me seasoned” chants the French disco duo, Justice, in “Fire.” There is a surrealistic and almost chintzy touch to their early 90s-like video for “Fire,” where we see a car wash, robot, and the duo with a woman driving to the sunset. The roadtrip romance – the freedom and connection on the road – that we all grew up idealizing as we watched retro films takes us into a nostalgic zone. The spinning disco ball and butt-shaking inducer beats of “Fire” brings our hyper teenage hormones back to the dancefloor:

“Fire” is from Justice’s third album, Woman, which came out in November 18, 2016. Justice, comprised of Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay, started out in 2003 and released their debut record, , in June 2007.
