Why see M83?
M83 are going on tour! Creators of majestic synth pop, French band M83 are returning this year to promote their 9th studio album 'Fantasy' which will be released March 2023! Their single 'Do It, Try It' took many fans aback with its jaunty piano line and general air of vaudeville meets Daft Punk, but it was just another evolution from a group always pushing themselves artistically.
M83's breakthrough, at least in North America, was 2011's towering double album Hurry Up, We're Dreaming. Awash with hazy electronics and dreamy melodies, it included the singles 'Midnight City' and 'Reunion'. Many publications included it on their list of Albums of the Year, while Pitchfork named it the 22nd best album of the decade so far. This was followed by the equally hypnotic soundtrack to the Tom Cruise movie Oblivion. Catch them playing cuts from Fantasy alongside older material.
