M83 Tour Schedule
Filed in your music library under shoegaze next to My Bloody Valentine and fellow French dream-pop giants Air, M83 make the kind of cinematic soundscapes that wouldn’t feel out of place in an 80s movie. Heavily indebted to John Hughes, Smashing Pumpkins and 80s synth-pop, M83’s Anthony Gonzalez never met a synthesizer he didn’t like.
Named after the Messier 83 galaxy, Gonzalez describes the band’s work as “very epic,” which comes across as an understatement for the booming heart-on-sleeve sound exhibited on albums like Saturdays=Youth and Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. Their single Midnight City, performed to great effect on M83 tour dates and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon even features an old school sax solo and manages to make it work.
