Justice Carradine

Singer-songwriter Justice Carradine has returned with the irresistibly catchy new single, “Limbo,” and an accompanying music video shot in Utah while in quarantine.

Co-written by Justice and produced by Luke Niccoli (Gryffin), “Limbo” pushes Carradine’s unique brand of high-energy pop towards new heights, once again fusing alternative, R&B, rock, and more to create something moving, memorable and altogether unique. The release follows the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist’s latest single, “Necessary Evil,” which arrived earlier this year.

Tagged “a veritable pop tour-de-force,” by Ones to Watch, Justice is an undeniable rising star. Speaking to EUPHORIA., the genre-blending artist tells us the inspiration behind his latest track, the experience of filming the music video in quarantine, how he’d describe his musical journey, his dream artists to tour with and much more.

What is the message behind your latest single “Limbo”?
The message behind “Limbo” is that life can be scary and uncertain, but you’ve just got to let go of your control and blow where the wind blows.

The music video was filmed in quarantine. What was the biggest challenge you faced doing that?
Finding people to help me film the video. Luckily two of my best friends came through and we had so much fun shooting it.

How has your sound evolved since the release of your debut single? How would you like to see it evolve in the future?
I feel like my sound is starting to reflect more of my perspective of the world and how I view things. In the future, I might want to add a little more classic rock vibes into the mix.

If you could describe your musical journey in one word what would it be and why?
Psychedelic, because it gets trippy sometimes and it blows my mind how connected everything is to music.

When creating new music, where do you often draw inspiration from?
I’m a very visual person, so I often get inspired by the way things look. Sometimes it’s the way the sun shines through the blinds in my room and other times it’s the way my feelings match up with the colors around me.

You’ve toured with some big names. If you could pick three dream artists to support on your own tour, who would they be and why?
Ford, because he’s a great dude and I love everything he makes. Choker, because I’d love to hang, and I also enjoy his music. Nick Leng, because that man is talented and vibes.

What is the best part of making new music? Is there anything that frustrates you about the process?
The best part would be listening to what was inside of my head play in the car with my friends. Sometimes I get overly critical of myself and that gets frustrating cause it takes the fun out of it for me.

What’s been the most memorable moment of your career so far? What’s next?
Tour, it’s such an interesting fast pace lifestyle that I really enjoy. I’d really just love to tour more and be with the people who love my music.

Finally, if you could have a soundtrack for your life, which songs would you choose? Why?
“White Ferrari” by Frank Ocean. “Can’t Buy Happiness” by Tash Sultana. “Trouble” by Lindsay Bucking Ham. “Sara” by Fleetwood Mac and “Naked” by Avril Lavigne. Those songs because they resonate with where I’m at in life and they’re just pretty!
