Sound of the Week: M83
Wednesday, July 16th, 2008
M83 is an electronic music group consisting of Anthony Gonzalez (and formerly Nicolas Fromageau), and was formed in Antibes, France in 2001. The musical style owes something to the shoegazing genre in its extensive use of reverb effects and lyrics spoken softly over loud instrumentals, though M83’s songs employ considerably less guitar than most shoegazing bands such as My Bloody Valentine.
Check out this amazing video, including “Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun” by M83.
