About “Presence”

“Presence” is a hidden song by Justice from their album Audio Video Disco.

Sometimes incorrectly labeled with the title “Haimalmattack”.

About Audio Video Disco

Justice is a French electronic music duo consisting of Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay. Their second studio album, Audio Video Disco, was released in 2011 and represented a departure from the hard-hitting electro sound of their debut album Cross. Instead, Audio Video Disco was inspired by 1970s and 1980s rock, pop, and prog rock, featuring live instrumentation, lush harmonies, and intricate arrangements.

The album received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising its ambitious scope and sonic experimentation, while others criticized its lack of cohesiveness and inconsistency. Nevertheless, Audio Video Disco was a commercial success, debuting at number two on the French Albums Chart and reaching the top 10 in several other countries.

Standout tracks include the funky, guitar-driven “Civilization,” the sweeping, prog-inspired “On’n’On,” and the hypnotic, vocoder-laden “Ohio.” Audio Video Disco is an intriguing and idiosyncratic entry in Justice’s discography, showcasing the duo’s willingness to take risks and push boundaries.

    I do wonder where the claim of “incorrectly labelled” comes from, since the title comes FROM THE BAND!

    • It is usually a miscommunication between the band and the record label, or the record label and whoever printed or set up the sleeves.

        However. While it is unlisted on the main album another release actually contains the same song with the title “Presence” and considering I have yet to see it referred to as anything the other. The title Hailmalattack is wrong and the song title is Presence.
