Earlier in the week, an unreleased Justice track by the name of “Alakazam” began making its way around the internet, enticing listeners with yet another taste of the French duo’s hotly anticipated album Woman. In the midst of the leak, Justice have opted to officially release the song as the third single off the forthcoming record.
“Alakazam” gets your heart racing from the get go with a driving disco beat coupled with an electrifying synth sequence. Warped vocals create an eerie atmosphere as haunting synths slowly rise out of the silence, before things kick into overdrive with some frantic slap bass riffs and cinematic sound design. The tune then reaches its high point with classic moog synth melodies and mystifying solina strings.
The accompanying music video for the new single recaps a recent performance from London, with the duo testing the song out for the packed crowd.
Following previous singles “Safe and Sound” and “Randy,” “Alakazam” is another strong offering from the duo that has our excitement for Woman reaching new heights. If the songs we’ve heard so far are any indication, Justice are primed to make their comeback full force when the album finally drops next month.
Woman will be released on November 18.
