DESCRIPTION

The М83 show will be centered around the band’s latest album Junk, released this spring as well as featuring the greatest hits of their fifteen-year career.

The primary inspiration for Junk—which the band has worked on for five years—comes from musical nostalgia for the 1970s and the 1980s. Critics have called Junk the music equivalent of the iconic 1985 movie Back to the Future, while Gonzalez admitted referencing popular American TV shows of the 1980s, saying ‘I wanted to make what I call an ‘organized mess’—a collection of songs that aren’t made to live with each other, yet somehow work together.’ For many critics this strategy seemed ‘a suffocating retromania’, while some saw the integrity of style and ‘undiscovered methods of researching the past’. Special praise was given for the albums vocals which featured guest artists such as Beck, Mai Lan, and Susanne Sundfør.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

M83 is a French music project founded in 2001 by Anthony Gonzalez and Nicolas Fromageau in Antibes, named after the spiral galaxy Messier 83. Fromageau left the band after the tour for their second album Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts. Gonzalez has released solo works as well as recording with M83. The band’s discography includes seven studio albums, the latest of which, Junk was released in April 2016. M83 is currently one of the most in-demand electronic projects in the world.
