I first heard of M83 a couple years ago when I spent a lot of time on the music site Thesixtyone. It is a social website where musicians and bands upload their tracks and then the songs are then ranked by the number of “hearts” received by the website’s users. The two songs of M83 that I liked back then and still like to this day are “We Own The Sky” and “Kim & Jessie.” Today’s song of the day Midnight City is from the upcoming album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, which will be released in October 2011. M83 is an Electronic and Dream Pop project of Anthony Gonzalez from Antibes, France.
YouTube Preview Image M83 is named Messier 83, a barred spiral galaxy about 15 million light-years away. It is so bright that it can be seen with binoculars. The main influence of Gonzalez’s Saturdays = Youth album in 2008 was 80s music. The influence of his upcoming Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming album is as the title mentions, dreams. The tracks will be darker in nature and reflect how dreams are different through the various stages of life.
