'Let me live, love and say it well in good sentences'

Cosmic commentaries courtesy of m83’s stellar double album ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’

m83  is an electro/synth-pop outfit, which centres around the mind and merits of French musician, Anthony Gonzalez. ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’ is the band’s sixth studio album and first ever double album, containing a total of 23 tracks.

‘Midnight City’ was the first single to be released from the record and has achieved great things both Stateside and in the UK/Europe.

 

The album is the highest charting release from the band to date; testament to the calibre of craftsmanship in its content. Gonzalez described the album as a mix between the synth-pop of fifth album ‘Saturdays=Youth’ (2008) and the more serene sounds of third album, ‘Before the Dawn Heals Us’ (2005). A perfect combination I think you’ll agree.

 

‘Reunion’ is rumoured to be the second single from the album, set for an iminent release. The 80’s influences are ever present on this track, yet m83 manages to continually refresh its sound, giving the band a much-needed modern, glossy and enticing edge when pitted against similar outfits.
