M83 – ?Before The Dawn Heals Us?

Taking their name from a distant galaxy, the duo of
Anthony Gonzalez and Nicolas Fromageau (pronounced
From-a-zho) from Antibes, France, make beautiful,
otherworldly music that sounds like it could have been
lifted from a sci-fi movie. These two have traded in
their guitars and punk aesthetic for a supremely
lush, melodic sound that sometimes has that weightless,
floating aura that hasSigur Ros stamped all over it, and
at others has the driving fuzz blast of the My Bloody
Valentine shoegazer set, both of which mark them out
as absolute winners in my book. It’s a mix of vocal and
instrumental tracks, with the 10-minute finale being the
icing on a delicious cake that will have you ditching that
diet you’ve been hating and coming back for much more.
