It’s been over a year since M83 released the fantastic album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming – proving once and for all that Anthony Gonzalez is the undisputed master at crafting swelling, electronic anthems. A good example of this is the burner “Steve McQueen”, which has a brand new video. The clip, directed by Balthazar Auxietre and Sylvain Derosne, perfectly captures that sense of childlike exploration and wonder. Watch below.
This just might be one of the best videos I’ve seen this year – official or unofficial. Franck Deron‘s unofficial and impressive video for M83‘s standout track, “Wait”, is just something else. The powerful visuals paired with the gorgeous track, result in something astoundingly poignant and beautiful. Deron took an already near-perfect song and took it to new heights. Amazing. Watch below.
October 18th cannot come fast enough. On that day, electronic master Anthony Gonzalez – aka M83 – will release his forthcoming album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, which he himself promised would be “very, very, very epic.” There isn’t a doubt in my mind that he will deliver. Thus far we’ve only heard the fantastic “Midnight City“, and now we get to have another listen: “Intro” is a beautiful and dreamy piece, made even more gorgeous by Zola Jesus’ powerful vocals. I mean, wow… What a way to open the album. Listen below.
