M83 – Midnight City

October 25, 2011

Superpowered kids escaping their confinement? Check. Dreamy French shoegaze? Check. This video for M83’s latest single, directed by Fleur & Manu, seems more like a trailer for a summer blockbuster than it does a music video. And that works perfectly since the song already seemed to have a cinematic grandeur to it. Catch them if you can this Friday at Black Cat – they’re playing two shows. Both are already sold out, but I’m sure you know other ways of getting your hands on tickets if you need to. (And based on M83’s latest album, you need to.)
