Dominating the scene for their hit single "Midnight City" off of their 2011 release "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming", M83 quickly became a global favorite for their ambient dream-pop and electronic synth-pop sound. With 9 albums up their sleeve, they're definitely an iconic artist in the industry. M83 just released its newest LP, "Fantasy", sharing its new singles "Oceans Niagara" and "Amnesia". Introducing a new focus on guitars for their new record, M83 continues to grow and develop its sound, living a fantasy of limitless possibilities.
"I wanted this record to be very impactful live," Gonzales shared about "Fantasy". "The idea was to come back with something closer to the energy of [2005’s] Before the Dawn Heals Us. The combination of guitars and synths is always in my music, but it’s maybe more present on this new record than on the previous ones."
"Oceans Niagara", the first song revealed from the album, serves the eccentric energy of adventure, driven by triumphant melodies in a guitar-driven M83 dream-pop landscape. "It’s this sense of going forward, like a magic potion that you take to discover new worlds," he shared about the track.
Moving beyond adventure in "Fantasy", M83 definitely soared new heights as the record marks its first release since 2019's "DSVII" or Digital Shades, Vol. II. Their 2019 release produced crowd-favorite singles "Temple of Sorrow" and "Lune de fiel".
With new music ready to shake live audiences, M83 is definitely ready to make its big return to touring, following its tenth anniversary for Hurry Up, We're Dreaming's big break. The album earned the band a Grammy nomination, and bagged Platinum certifications for its hit single "Midnight City".
"It's mainly about dreams, how every one is different," Gonzales told Spin. "How you dream differently when you're a kid, a teenager, or an adult. I'm really proud of it."
