Single of The Week – m83

Synthy music has practically always been in my blood. As some dads threw Springsteen and Led Zeppelin at their kids, my dad chose to bring me up with the likes of Styx, Journey, ELO and various other ’80s arena rock worship. With the synths swirling around on Styx’s “Come Sail Away” and the arena rock quality of Journey so massive, your body is virtually forced to go on autopilot fistpumping, I was prepared at a young age to assume all music was meant to sound big and nerdy. Thankfully, for dorks such as myself, m83 exists. Taking constant hints from the ’80s, he’s mastered electronic music to not only connect with mainstream audiences, but to add enough teen emotion and angst to make John Hughes weep tears of joy. His new single, “Midnight City”, was released today along with the announcement of his double album, Hurry Up We’re Dreaming, coming out on October 18th. If this single is any indication, we have around three months until the best record of 2011 conquers the world.
