M83 About

M83 is a French electronic/shoegaze/pop band from Antibes, formed in 2001 by Anthony Gonzalez and Nicolas Fromageau. Gonzalez remains the primary member of the band after Fromageau’s departure after the release of their second album. The band is named after the spiral galaxy Messier 83, and its musical aesthetic is influenced by shoegaze in its extensive use of reverb effects and lyrics spoken softly over loud instrumentals, although M83’s songs employ considerably less guitar than most shoegaze bands.

After the release of the crossover smash hit “Midnight City” from their 2011 double album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, M83 gained massive mainstream recognition, and has continued to tour and make music for movies and television.
