M83 are an electronic shoegaze / indie pop act by French musician Anthony Gonzalez. It is named after a spiral galaxy, Messier 83. The band was founded in 2001 by Gonzalez and former member Nicolas Fromageauin Antibes, France. The musical style of M83 owes something to the shoegazing genre in its extensive use of reverb effects and lyrics spoken softly over loud instrumentals, although M83’s songs employ considerably less guitar than most shoegazing bands. On July 19, 2011, “Midnight City”, the first single from M83’s new album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, was released for streaming and free download on the band’s official website. The international tour in support of the new album will include shows across North America.
