Amid all the misplaced ’90s nostalgia that’s been going around, one 25-year-old pop culture touchstone has stood out this year as being fully deserving of a celebratory reappraisal. Electro pop duo Justice know exactly what’s up, which presumably is why they’ve just dropped an irresistibly cool hat-tip to Ridley Scott’s classic feminist road movie from 1991, Thelma & Louise.
Directed by Pascal Teixeira, the video to the group’s new single ‘Fire’, taken from their third studio album, aptly titled ‘Woman’, sees Susan Sarandon dust off a familiar-looking muscle car (an 1985 Toyota RA65 Celica, if you’re interested) and hit the open road. It’s a simple, infectiously sunny four-minute marvel that’s guaranteed to make you smile. The song’s not half bad either. Watch it up top and let us know your thoughts @LWLies

Twenty five years ago Ridley Scott’s road movie pointed the way for gender equality. So why has so little changed?
