The bosses of the crosses Justice have shared a NSFW video for their current live single ‘Pleasure’.

The video, directed by Alexandre Courtès of Division, portrays two lovers entwined in passion before becoming part of an abstract, cosmic explosion — the product of which leads to the birth of new life.

Alexandre Courtès is the man responsible for seminal videos such ‘Seven Nation Army’ by The White Stripes and the Grammy Award-winning video for U2’s ‘Vertigo’, and was also the designer of Daft Punk’s iconic helmets.

“Xavier and Gaspard had a concept in mind of a supernatural love scene: an extrapolation of feelings during sex, a symbiosis,” explained Courtès on the duo’s initial concept for the video.

“I fell in love with the idea, as I had something similar in mind for a while. So to combine their ideas with mine was great. For a long time, I’ve wanted to play with strong vivid colors and bright tubes that travel through the bodies of characters…and they liked the idea too. We ended up shooting a bold, sensual sex scene, with lavish colors.

“Nicolas Loir’s lighting really made the scene look amazing and helped the film come together brilliantly. I knew we had to be in the action: to be as close as we could to their faces and skin. Thanks to Nicolas’ work, the shoot was less raw, making the end result truly exciting.

“My goal in the project was to achieve a sensual film that deals with emotions, a film that goes beyond the crude aspect of the situation. I hope we got close to it.”

Latest single ‘Pleasure’ was recorded live by Justice and was mixed by Tom Elmhirst — Grammy Award-winning mix engineer who has worked with Amy Winehouse, Adele, David Bowie and more. The single is a brand-new version of the track which originally featured on Justice’s latest album ‘Woman’.

Justice recently headlined Glastonbury Festival’s West Holts Stage, closing the festival on the Sunday night. The performance was met with a rapturous response and critical acclaim, and served as a preview of the duo’s two anticipated forthcoming shows at London’s O2 Brixton Academy next week.
