M83 at Terminal 5 (October 14, 2016)

By Will Oliver, December 20th 2016

On October 14 M83 returned to New York for the first of a pair of sold out shows at Terminal 5. The tour came in support of their rather polarizing new album Junk which was released via Mute Records earlier this year and followed their performance at Governors Ball over the summer.

The new disco and funk influence found on the songs off of Junk sounded even more polished and bigger live, and were mixed in nicely among the more ambient and dramatic soundscapes from their earlier albums.

The show featured an opening set from rising British singer Shura, who released her debut album Nothing’s Real this year via Polydor Records.

Find M83’s setlist posted below, along with a gallery of photos from both sets.

[new]: M83 – I Need You

By Will Oliver, March 4th 2014

Divergent Soundtrack

M83’s brainchild Anthony Gonzalez continues to deliver lush scores for some big Hollywood movies. His latest work goes towards the the upcoming film Divergent.

It’s a song titled “I Need You” that features some heavenly vocals that have that very M83 sweeping feel. As if you’re floating upwards towards the good graces of the heavens, only to be taken right back home with one big jazzy section that throws a whole load of emotions on you, until the feels become to much to handle. Then it’s time to hit repeat.

Will be interesting to see how they use “I Need You” in the film. Hope it gets a good scene, because it definitely deserves it. This is a monstrous track.

Enjoy “I Need You” below.

White Sea – Prague (M83’s Morgan Kibby)

By Will Oliver, January 29th 2014 — with 1 comment

White Sea

Morgan Kibby of M83 is embarking on her own solo project known as White Sea.

She’s released a new single, from her soon to be released debut album In Cold Blood. Fans of M83 will fall for “Prague” instantly, as it’s somewhat of an extension of her work with them, if not a little more on the pop side.

Take a listen to “Prague” below.

[new]: M83 – Ali & Matthias

M83 - Ali & Matthias

M83’s frontman Anthony Gonzalez just doesn’t stop working. He’s easily one of the hardest workers currently in the game. When he’s not releasing stuff with his band, he’s scoring soundtracks such as the Tom Cruise starring Oblivion or producing songs for The Killers.

He continues his soundtrack contributions with a score for the film You and the Night. You can find the film’s trailer over at MMM.

He’s already shared a song from the soundtrack called “Ali & Matthias.” It’s more of a lovely orchestration from M83, with a more dear approach, as opposed to the widescreen bombast that we’re so used to. Here’s the description of the song that accompanies its soundcloud stream:

Here is a new track from ‘You And The Night’. The soundtrack pays tribute to French soundtracks from the 70’s and is much more intimate than ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’ and the ‘Oblivion’ Soundtrack. This score is really for lovers and ghosts.

Check out “Ali & Matthias” below.

[new]: The Killers – Shot At The Night (Produced By M83)

By Will Oliver, September 18th 2013 — with 1 comment

The Killers

Believe it or not, The Killers have been a band for 10 years now. If that doesn’t make you feel old..I don’t know what will. They’re releasing a greatest hits compilation album titled Direct Hits on November 11 to celebrate the mark. It features a few new songs, including “Short At The Night” which was produced by Anthony Gonzalez of M83.

“Shot At The Night” sounds like a old school radio hit that you would hear in the heart of the 80’s (the title fits too), with some ample electronic effects that are a credit to Gonzalez’s talent behind the board. It’s one of my favorite things that The Killers have released in a while. Dig it up below.

[music video]: M83 – Claudia Lewis

Screen Shot 2013-08-09 at 1.43.04 AM

Two year later, and tracks from M83’s 2011 release Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming are still getting music videos. The latest is for “Claudia Lewis”, but it’s a special one.

It’s the latest “Supervideo” from MTV, directed by actress Bryce Dallas Howard (who I will unfortunately always associate with M Night Shamalyn) and stars Lilly Collins (The BLinde Side) and Israel Broussard (The Bling Ring). Howard’s influence for the video was The Man Who Fell To Earth which starred Dave Bowie.

Watch it below via MTV:

M83’s Anthony Gonzalez Scoring Oblivion // Listen To A Song Now

By Will Oliver, March 6th 2013 — with 2 comments


Based on the trailers, I was fairly interested in Oblivion. Tom Cruise is usually good (Jack Reacher was underrated), even if the whole apocalyptic world thing seems rather tired. But it wasn’t until this post by Rolling Stone that I learned that M83’s brainchild Anthony Gonzalez scored the film. He worked it along with composer Joseph Trapanese.

We now can take a listen to a song from the movie, a big scorching dramatic anthem that sounds rather close to many things we’ve heard in movies before, but it’s still pretty.
