M83 – Midnight City

Taken from the album ‘Hurry Up We’re Dreaming’
Out now on Mute/Naive
Stan says: When played at volume the synth riff in ‘Midnight City’ seems to have the ability to scramble our brainwaves, shutting down all higher level ponderings roughly five seconds after it starts coming out of the speakers. Not so great for getting work done perhaps but often enjoyable if the time window is available and you feel the need to disengage for 4 minutes or so. That the new video for ‘Midnight City’ takes place in a school for kids with extra-curricular weight lifting skills leaves us even more inclined towards its discombobulating charms.
