“Civilization” came out last month after it originally appeared in a Romain Gavras-directed Adidas commercial. Here’s the video for “Civilization,” which premiered this morning on Dailymotion. In a Progress Report, Gaspard Augé said, “With Justice, we always did music that could provide strong feelings or images, though we hate the word “cinematic” when it comes to music, because it sounds like ’90s trip-hop. But we’ve always searched a way to make the listener feel either invincible, happy, or sad.” The same could be said about this video, in which iconic statues and carvings (Christ the Redeemer, Stonehenge, Mount Rushmore, etc) tumble and fall as buffalo stampede toward the end of the earth. The video was directed by Edouard Salier, who’s also done clips for Massive Attack and Air. Check it out:
